I am writing a science fiction novel, and it seems the characters ended up mostly all female. The book is written from the points of view of both humans, and the alien race that plays a huge part in the plot. For the humans, it was the plan to have mostly females as it follows four generations of a family, all of which are women. But I ended up so far writing almost all of the alien characters as woman as well. There are a few men that play important roles the story line and quite a few very minor male characters, but still the females in the book do well out number the males. Now I know this is fine and likely even the best way to do it in certain styles of writing... but in Sci-fi? Hopefully I will be able to get some opinions on this. Do you personally think it's ok to have a science fiction story, (these types of books tend to be read from what I understand by more men than women)? What would you say is a good ratio of males to females among the main and supporting characters? If more balance is needed, can you suggest the best way to fix my error? I was confidant with my book so far, at first, but recently I have begun to question whether it will turn out a bit awkward. Thanks for any advice.
