The government is a matriarchal dictatorship, run by an all-seeing psychic called Cirin. Her rule is totalitarian with, bizarrely, a bias towards motherhood. And her biggest threat comes not from Cerebus, a mere male- but from Astoria, the old consort of Cerebus who started him on the road to power. Astoria is a libertarian, believing that women shouldnt be tied to their domestic responsibilities - in stark contrast to Cirins fascism of the family.Women focuses on the differences between Cirin and Astoria, as Cirins prepares to follow Cerebus attempt to ascend and become a god.
