The gold metal bikini has become the dominant image of Princess Leia from Cosplay to toy shelves. But the context of that costume -- being a sex slave for a slug monster -- has sparked a debate among fans as to whether the costume is highly offensive, harmless cheesecake, or a feminist icon. With Donna Dickens, Annalee Newitz, Adam Buxton and Alyssa Rosenberg. This is part III of a V part series on how Star Wars changed the way we see our world.
