Women As furniture in science fiction

A quick survey of science fiction films reveals a paucity of meaty female roles: In the early days of the genre, most sci-fi leading ladies were granted the role of Love Interest or Saucy Sidekick, but rarely given liberty to actually kick butt. Soylent Green went so far as to refer to women as "furniture" (they came with the apartment), and the one enduring sci-fi heroine, Barbarella, still spent more time worrying about getting laid than catching villains. -- Janelle Brown in http://dir.salon.com/tech/feature/2000/08/19/scifi_babes/index.html
