15. Women's EarthWomen wear the pants on this world. Women here fly planes, hold public office, play professional sports, and are the captains of industry. They can even become Pope, just ask Pope Jane Pauley! Men stay home and take care of the kids or, maybe, get a job as a receptionist. Hillary Clinton is president. One wonders if Elizabeth Dole ran against her in the 1996 election.
16. Tahiti EarthA nice place to spend nine days, sipping Singapore Slings beachside.
- Don't confuse Women's Earth with the X Chromosome Earth seen in the episode Love Gods. On Women's Earth, the women have run society for centuries. On X Chromosome Earth, women run society because most of the men were recently killed off by a virus released by the Iraqis.
