What Stargate Atlantis Episodes focus most on female wraith, and wraith gender norms?
I have an upcoming essay on "Vampirism in Literature, and It's Effects on Gender Dominance and Representation" and I am thinking about including a bit about the Wraith from Stargate Atlantis as sort of non-traditional vampires. I'm not sure I have time to watch all the SG:A episodes back to back before it is due, so I'm hoping some members of the community can point me in the right direction.
Also, as a side note, is it ever clarified in the show whether there are only a hand full of female Wraith for every several hundred males, or do the Wraith women simply not fly around on space ships with the men except for the queens?

I recommend to read articles like these, and maybe watch the episodes given as sources because in those most information about the Wraith was revealed.
As far as I remember it's been never clarified how Wraith society works in detail and how big the female population is, and what the function of women beside queens might be. It's known that queens can have a large following (due to their reproduction capability), but it was never specified if there are females who are not queens (besides Ellia who was still a child; and maybe the Keeper from "Rising", so wraith women may indeed have other occupations).
