not natter. It's an important point that should be addressed.
* ''Manga/MakenKi'' features a predominantly female cast and makes it a point to assert their dominance over the series' male lead, due to his belief that [[WomenAreDelicate woman shouldn't fight.]] An outlook which has gotten [[http://www.mangatown.com/manga/maken_ki/c003/5.html Takeru told off]] [[http://www.mangatown.com/manga/maken_ki/c003/28.html more than once.]] Further, despite being the protagonist, [[SupportingProtagonist his role is secondary]] to [[{{Deuteragonist}} Himegami's]], since she's the manga's [[LivingMacGuffin most plot relevant]] [[http://www.mangatown.com/manga/maken_ki/c012/33.html character.]]

* MagicalGirl shows with the added kick of portraying femininity as an object of power rather than weakness. That is to say rather than simply having action girls who are essentially just gender inverted action men magical girls instead tend to have girly powers and weapons that are just as effective.

* ''{{Gokusen}}'' Is about a female Yakuza heiress who teaches in an all-boy's school for delinquents, trying to balance keeping her students in check like a drill Sargent, kicking all kinds of ass, saving the handsome ''DudeInDistress'' Shin, & yakuza politics. The live action series....Not so much.

Bad sentence structure in this paragraph. Also, the original point was also correct.
Well, because commercial fiction is produced to make money, and historically, for a variety of reasons, women are more likely to pay for a story about a man than the opposite. Writers generally need to demonstrate potential profitability to get their works made, hence the English-speaking world's cumulatively-greater focus on women as equal partners in society since the late 19th century has been slow to translate into fiction in which women figure as main characters. And adventure-oriented genre works, including fantasy and science fiction have been slower in that respect than romantic, comic, domestic, or "literary" stories.

Well, because commercial fiction is produced to make money. And, statistically, men have historically had more disposable income than women. Writers are generally poor, and the people deciding whether or not to fund them were generally older. Therefore, the English-speaking world's cumulatively-greater focus on women as equal partners in society since the late 19th century has been slow to translate into fiction in which women figure as main characters. And adventure-oriented genre works, including fantasy and science fiction have been slower in that respect than romantic, comic, domestic, or "literary" stories. But eventually, from those creators with financial independence or supportive backers, we got Feminist Fantasy.
