World of Only Women . . . . No Stinkin' Men

Female mice can be turned "lesbian" by deleting a single gene at embryo stage, scientists have discovered. The simple procedure causes the modified mice to reject the advances of their male counterparts and attempt to mate with fellow females.
Researchers found that disabling the FucM gene – which influences the levels of oestrogen to which the brain is exposed – caused the mice to behave as if they were male as they grew up.__Telegraph
A world of women, without any men, has been a dream of feminists, lesbians, and science fiction writers for over a century. Science is learning how to create such a world, genetically and by other means. Korean research on mice opens the door to one interesting approach to a world ruled by women:
Professor Chankyu Park of the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology in Daejon, South Korea, who led the research, said: "The mutant female mouse underwent a slightly altered developmental programme in the brain to resemble the male brain in terms of sexual preference."
Scientists have long sought a genetic link to homosexuality.. _Telegraph_via_BrianWang

A world of lesbian women would still need to reproduce -- which opens up more challenges. Will the world of women keep clutches of male breeders in corrals, roused at dusk and dawn each day for machine milking into the artificial insemination tanks? Or will a sexless form of reproduction be developed, eliminating the need for men altogether?

And what form would a world of only women take? What would be taught in the universities? What type of buildings would be raised? How would only women travel from place to place? How would they communicate across vast distances?

We live in a world of technologies based largely upon the work of uber-geeks of the male persuasion. Our jetliners, our skyscrapers, our communications satellites and supercomputers, our farming machinery, our railways and shipyards -- all designed, built, and operated mainly by men. What sort of world will the only-women build?

More later.

"What sort of world will the only-women build?"

Too frightening to contemplate. Enough said...

Based on my experience dealing with a number of lesbian couples, as tenants in the past:

A world of lesbians would collapse as the women did nothing but fight and argue with each other.

Seriously... the most bizarre, unstable relationships I have ever witnessed are two women living together as a couple.
