Abstract: In Science Fiction, readers get to know the role of women in correspondence with men and then contemplate their relationships. The relationship can come from everyday life or as a relation in a job and it can also be derived from our mentality and society. It is common that all these relationships develop a higher level in meaning in Science Fiction.
In the two short stories "His Vegetable Wife" and "Stable Strategies for Middle Management" we get to know the role of a traditional woman and a modern woman in comparison to men, but in a more scientific way. We also get to know a society without a distinction between women and men in The Left Hand of Darkness. In the film Splice we will see the twisted way of a woman transforming into a man and what this kind of evolution means for the woman-man relationship. All these plots show different kinds of male and female relations in Science Fiction. The relationships can differ from each other but they can also have similarities or even have their origin in the Oedipus complex and the Elektra complex.
