cf N.K. Jemisin's _The Ones Who Stay and Fight_

Thank you, David, I was unfamiliar with it!

I was going to recommend that story too! I'll be very interested to see any thoughts you might have on it.

Jemisin is a kind of theorist of oppression, and has very interesting things to say. A few of her works are relatively transparent commentaries on real world social structures, but most (especially the Broken Earth trilogy, which is truly a masterpiece) imagine power structures with no obvious analogy to anything in our world in order to interrogate concepts of oppression and liberation. It's also just great fiction. :)
