* MaritalRapeLicense: When men of the Clan make "the Signal," women are expected to drop everything and present for a sexual encounter. The Signal is generally done only with one's mate, but it can be given to any female if [[ImAManICantHelpIt the male's need is that pressing]]. Broud does it to Ayla only to [[WalkyVerse pound her viciously]] (he's a [[InterplayOfSexAndViolence sadistic bully]]), and Ayla is shocked to learn later that other women ''like'' sex and are not above flirting with their men. Even Clan women employ certain seductive postures and motions to give men ideas.

* {{Gendercide}}: This is Attaroa's ultimate goal for her people, using a concentration camp and forced labor as an intermediary step. [[WhatAnIdiot She Since -- like pretty much everyone except Ayla in this setting -- she has no idea how women conceive, she thinks women will just give birth to girls after all the men die.]]

* LovingDeatils: In ''The Valley of Horses'' and following books, Ayla demonstrates a remarkable memory to Jondolar—specifically, when she learns that his morning routine includes a cup of tea and a small stick with which to clean his teeth, she makes a point of having those available to him every morning. At first he is impressed, but eventually it becomes routine. Then in the following book, ''The Mammoth Hunters,'' they break up—but then, Jondolar realizes that she's ''still putting them out for him every morning.'' This makes him realize that she still loves him.

* YouAreGrounded: Ayla's punishment for trying to force Brun into accepting her "deformed" son, Durc, is to have her freedom to come and go as she pleases curtailed. Initially, she is confined to Creb's hearth for a month, her existence unacknowledged by those who do not share the same living space. After that, she is forbidden to leave the area of the cave except to go on essential plant-gathering forays; even then, she has to ask Brun's permission and is under strict orders to return promptly. Her hunting privileges are also revoked. These restrictions remain in force until after Brun's clan return from the Clan Gathering.
