* Averted in ''Francise/LyricalNanoha'' with Precia Testarossa, who was both physically and emotionally abusive to her daughter Fate. In contrast, Jail Scaglietti was depicted as a loving father to his twelve cyborg minions (even the ones who eventually betrayed him).

* Averted in ''Manga/ERASED'', where Kayo's mother is the one who beats her, though she and her boyfriend are both verbally abusive as well.

* Both played straight and subverted in ''FanFic/OriginStory''. During a psychological evaluation with Doc Samson, Alexandra Harris reveals that while her father occasionally hit her when she was a kid, "if I counted the number of times he did it on both hands, I'd have fingers left over." Her father was an emotional abuser more than a physical one. It was her mother who was much more likely to physically abuse her. Doc Samson notes that emotional abuse is just as damaging as physical abuse.

** OTOH, at least two female sexual predators are seen, and another is accused of being one but later shown to be innocent (of that, at least; as Songbird herself said, no one who worked for Freya had clean hands).

* ''Literature/TheMillenniumTrilogy'': one of the major running themes of the series is misogyny. It delves into this theme extensively, drawing from the author's journalistic experience. This inevitably hasn't pleased everyone.

** Isn't that the episode where the man was a stripper, and there were three women, and two of them held him down while the third had her way? If one can watch it and think an erection has relevance, you're kind of missing the point.



** One episode involved a mother who constantly traveled and was slightly unhinged who tried to see her son despite a restraining order from the boy's father. When the boy is kidnapped and eventually dies when the van he's in accidentally drives into a river, it is revealed that the mother had tried to get a mercenary-for-hire to kidnap her son so she could take him with her to another country. However, it is revealed that the boy's father, trying to frame the mother (despiet knowing she had violated the restraining order) arrested, hired the kidnapper and was thus indirectly responsible for the boy's death. And the mother was given more sympathy even after she had almost fatally shot M.D. Warner.

*** The lack of rebroadcast before was apparently due to protests by women's groups.



* In an episode of ''Series/WithoutATrace'' a school councilor assumes a student is being beaten by his father and is tight lipped about it. To be fair, she was basing her assumption around her own experiences with parental abuse where her father [[spoiler: killed her mother when she called him out on it]] and eventually the boy opens up to correct her and state that its his mother whose the abuser. Thankfully the episode is a subversion because both the councilor and the agents respond rather negatively to the mother for this.

* Despite being a {{Lifetime}} series, ''Series/StrongMedicine'' actually averted this a handful of times. A patient of Lu expresses concern because is about to be paroled for rape. She insists that he's like this because they were both molested as children. Lu naturally assumes it was their father and is shocked when the woman reveals that it was their ''mother''.

* While [[HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood child abuse is usually played for laughs]] in TheSimpsons it mainly focuses on the abuse Homer and other males dish out while Marge’s abusive nature is usually overlooked or completely ignored.
** Averted as of recently where there have been many episodes depicting how abusive Marge is to her kids

* Played with in Hozier's "Cherry Wine". In the song, it's from the perspective of a man abused by his girlfriend. The video implies that the boyfriend is the abusive one.
