Needless to say, not TruthInTelevision.

Needless to say, the idea that women cannot commit crimes of their own volition is not TruthInTelevision.

Added DiffLines:

* Averted in ''Literature/TheBadSeed''. Not only is Rhoda a [[EnfantTerrible vicious sociopath of a child]] but she's like that because [[spoiler: it's inherited from her maternal grandmother]].

** ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyTrialsAndTribulations''. At first, [[spoiler:Dahlia's]] tendencies date back to being neglected as a child. But not only was she horrible even as a child (sending [[spoiler:her twin sister Iris]] to a monastery just so she can be center of attention) but her issues go back to the turmoil within the women of the Fey Clan.

But not only was she horrible even as a child (sending [[spoiler:her twin sister Iris]] to a monastery just so she can be center of attention) but her issues go back to the turmoil within the women of the Fey Clan. The series in general averts this, as most female murderers are just as petty and greedy as the male murderers, though they are much, ''much'' less common than the male ones, at a ratio of roughly 4 or 5 to 1.

Added DiffLines:

* Frequently played with or subverted in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'':
** In the first episode, while watching a riot that resulted from the alien invasion, Wonder Woman remarks on how savage "man's world" is (comparing it to her all-female home of Themyscira). J'onn immediately tells her not to judge them so harshly because "they're scared", and points out that amid the rioting an equal number of people are rushing to the help of others and digging victims from the rubble.
** ''Very'' darkly subverted with Tala, who longed for affection, would obsessively cling to whichever man was in charge, and obediently follow his orders. [[spoiler:She gets ''no'' sympathy from anyone: she's depicted as pathetic more than anything, it's made quite clear she's a bad person regardless, and she ends up shackled into Lex Luthor's machine and brutally electrocuted to death.]]

* Of the most famous ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' villainesses, ComicBook/{{Catwoman}} varies between being an AntiHero and AntiVillain (and her villainy in ''Film/BatmanReturns'' is caused by an evil man trying to kill her), HarleyQuinn is a sympathetic abuse victim of a far more evil man, Talia al Ghul was reared by an evil father and is noticeably more sympathetic than him. ComicBook/PoisonIvy is less sympathetic but even her origin story has her being experimented on by an evil man.

* Subverted in ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire'', of the three Lannister siblings, Cersei is by far the most villainous and least sympathetic, in contrast to her AntiHero brothers.

* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemAwakening'' seems to only have one truly evil woman throughout the game, with any other women merely being antagonists and/or mooks. But if you receive the [=SpotPass=] chapters [[spoiler: you suddenly find out that she was mind controlled for the entire game, she then joins your team.]] To compare, [[spoiler:Gangrel]] was a genuinely messed up individual, with a long list of atrocities to his name; [[spoiler: he joins too,]] but he actually ''has'' to bear responsibility for his actions, instead of shifting the blame to someone else.

to:

* ''VideoGame/FireEmblem'': In the latest Fire Emblem games, truly villainous female bosses have become very rare and are usually depicted as an abused pawn of the real male villain.
** ''VideoGame/FireEmblemMysteryOfTheEmblem'': Both of the female villains in the subplot are depicted as tragic pawns of the male villain, the teenager [[spoiler: Clarissa]] being raised from birth as an assassin and the adult woman, who raised her, [[spoiler: Eremiya]] being magically corrupted by a male villain. Both get tragic cutscenes on their deathbed, conversely the male assassin, [[spoiler: Legion]] dies with much less fanfare despite having the same FreudianExcuse as [[spoiler: Clarissa]].

* They are working alone or are the boss, but have a FreudianExcuse for their actions and they're NeverASelfMadeWoman. The typical belief is ''"behind every bitch, there's a man who made her that way"''.
