This story, written in 1989, describes the current status of women to a tee. John Norman was a visionary who didn't only identify the problem, but also gave a solution: uncontested male power over women, a more violent world in general, more localized governance, and, unfortunately, an extreme regression in technology. That last one is the least realistic by far.

In Outlaw, a city is described where the women all wear silver masks, and enjoy rights over men. In the dining halls, the women eat for free; the city is socialist, but only insofar as it benefits women. Men are second-class citizens, and for the slightest reason are thrown into the silver mines, a prison where few people survive longer than 6 months. The main character leads a slave revolt and destroys this city, restoring patriarchy and the enslavement of women.

In the modern day, women's ability to point the finger at any man and tell a lie that will get him arrested might even be more power than individual silver masks had. At least in this story, the other men wouldn't act on her behalf; only the city militia would, because they were in cahoots with the golden-masked ruler. It's ironic that, despite John Norman's best effort to exaggerate the foid problem to fantastic proportions, it still falls short in some places.

Also Germans are really weird about this book series and they have a BDSM kink scene based on it.

Gor requires weapons technology specifically to stay pre-gunpowder. Doesn't matter if they have computers and space travel, it's guns that make this order impossible. To that end, in Gor, anyone who creates anything resembling a gun spontaneously combusts. In this way, the author admits that this is unrealistic.

The reason given is that pre-gunpowder warfare selects for positive masculine attributes like courage, valor, etc. Maybe weapons technology will progress its way out of this hole, think mechas and power armor, but gunpowder will never be un-invented.
