* Good lord. The Melissa McCarthy comedy ''The Boss'' not only devotes an entire scene to McCarthy's character beating the hell out of a man (complete with a shot to crotch, of course) but it uses this "hilarious" scene to sell the movie in all the advertisements.

* Inverted in ''Film/{{Suffragette}}'', violence against women is considered perfectly acceptable by the police who beats the protagonist up for participating in a peaceful demonstration, and the husbands of the suffragists, who likewise see nothing wrong in beating their wives. Other men treat this as a laughing matter. When the protagonist finally strikes back against her abusive boss, this is treated as a very serious thing by the police, and she only gets out of a prison sentence because [[spoiler: they want to use her as spy inside the suffrage movement.]]

** This case might be {{justified|Trope}} by the setting and time period. Good luck searching for a military man in TheForties to admit he's been beaten by a woman, or getting a high-ranking agent and military supervisor taken down for offenses that no one wants to acknowledge even happened, let alone prove. This only looks worse on Peggy, by the way, since she's supposed to be one of the good guys, but the inaction isn't unrealistic.

* In ''Film/TheManFromUNCLE2015'', Gaby slaps Illya twice after convincing him to dance with her and then escalates the situation by tackling him the man to the ground when he protests. There is no reason or justification for her behaviour whatsoever, and the scene is PlayedForLaughs.

* Feminists would have erupted if sexes had been switched during the reunion scene between Thor and Jane Foster in ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld''. Despite the first ''Film/{{Thor}}'' film establishing her team's knowledge that the Bifröst Bridge had been destroyed at the end of his battle with Loki, then ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' having the heroes' battle with the Chitauri made public news (to which she would've had to realize that someone had sent him there with full focus on stopping the threat), her first reaction to seeing Thor again was to slap him twice demanding to know where he was because his absence was hard on her.

* Try to imagine the scene in ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger'' where Peggy Carter punches a man to ground with genders reversed. Same thing applies to the scene where she shoots at Captain America.

America without even giving him a chance to explain that he didn't initiate the kiss with the SexySecretary. (For the record: Peggy gets even worse during the first few episodes of [[Series/AgentCarter her own TV series]].)
