Hey everybody. I would like to know your takes on Cardassian women. I am re-watching DS9 after about ten years and I find Cardassians fascinating. Is their only role similar to women in Facist cultures? Are they seen as pure and virtuous? The tools to build a strong empire by having lots of children? How much do they know about their husbands roles on Bajor? Are their marriages for love or for another purpose? In regards to Dukat, he had a Cardassian wife and seven children with her. We never hear or see any of them. I wonder what the dynamics of their relationship was. Damar has to be my favourite Cardassian. He was also married with children. But we only see him with his mistresses. Did he alienate his wife because of his drinking and depression. Did he think he failed to live up to the ideal of the Cardassian husband and father by being a puppet for the Dominion? Any ideas? Any takes?
