24. Also Ecclesiazusae
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assemblywomen
http://classics.mit.edu/Aristophanes/eccles.html

Although that one is probably more suited to the freepers, as it pretty much paints women as overly-democratic socialists. But it is also a tacit nod to the potential power of women (and perhaps the fear of that power it when women are repressed). The use of sex as a political instrument is again humorously explored.
