** This results in a social problem for men too: it means that there is a perpetual drought of females for spouses. And unfortunately, this problem is "solved" by trafficking women from other countries who are forced into marriage to these men, women who are usually North Korean defectors.

And unfortunately, this problem is "solved" by trafficking women from other countries who are forced into marriage to these men, women who are usually North Korean defectors. The Family Planning Policy was enforced through a financial penalty in the form of the "social child-raising fee" which is a percentage of the annual income.
** The rules have since been relaxed so that families are allowed to apply to have a second child if they live away from densely populated urban areas. As of 2007, only 35.9% of the population were subject to a strict one-child limit. 52.9% were permitted to have a second child if their first-born was a daughter; 9.6% of Chinese couples were permitted two children regardless of their gender; and 1.6% had no limit at all.

* Due to his irrational hatred of girls, [[WebAnimation/TheAutisticWorldOfTheAutist Brian]] attempted to do this in one episode in an attempt to do a FinalSolution. [[GoneHorriblyWrong It doesn't work as well as he hoped]].

* Margaret Atwood's ''[[TheHandmaidsTale The Handmaid's Tale]]'' plays with a variant of this, in which 95% of all women were rendered sterile by a plague. This leads--in America at least--to a [[CorruptChurch rigid theocracy]] which virtually enslaves the few remaining fertile women. The men are also frequently sterile but the theocracy insists that failure to produce children is the fault of women. This leads to handmaids trying to secretly conceive children by fertile men to prevent themselves being declared barren and sent to the work camps.

* In ''[[TheVampireChronicles The Queen of The Damned]]'' the titular {{vampire}} attempts this with males. [[PersonOfMassDestruction By her own power.]] [[{{Squick}} Or worse]]. A bunch of boys and girls who are just entering puberty, and no adult supervision? And yes, that was the official reason for the lack of girls.

* UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne saw the deaths of ten million soldiers -- all of them male -- and six million civilians. Given equal distribution of civilian casualties by gender, that's over four men killed for every woman. When Europe tried to pick up the pieces after the war was over, they were faced with a plethora of women and a dearth of men.

* By contrast, UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo killed approximately sixty million people. Twenty-five million were soldiers (overwhelmingly male, although not ''entirely'' so this time around[[note]]The Soviet Union, being founded on an ideology that called for gender equality, also had female soldiers - although they were much fewer than the men.[[/note]]), while around thirty-five million were civilians. Again, given equal male and female civilian deaths, that means a little over two men dead per woman.

* In AndreNorton's ''[[Literature/{{Warlock}} Ordeal In Otherwhere]]'', the white death had killed men and adolescent boys except for a handful -- the most religious families and those with the least trust for the government, which they interpret as judgment. It does mean they want to buy slaves from a Free Trader to do agricultural labor, since they destroyed machinery as a response to the plague.\\

* Polish CultClassic ''Film/SexMission'' is about two men waking up from [[HumanPopsicle cryogenic sleep]] to discover that they're apparently the only males in the world now, the others having been killed by a pandemic and nuclear war. Women live underground and their community denies the existence of males. The movie was directed in the time of the Soviet Union, and was one big GettingCrapPastTheRadar about living in a land under the control of a totalitarian communist regime.

* The [[GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe Syreen]] from ''StarControl 2'' had a mirrored version happening to them: when their entire home planet was suddenly turned into a LethalLavaLand, the few survivors were the species' budding space force... which was overwhelmingly female. At one point they state that they number 10,000 women to 500 men, so the species can likely survive if they're careful about breeding for a while.

* It's only seen in the [[AllThereInTheManual titles of the soundtrack songs]], but this was apparently done to men after a sex-based civil war/armed rebellion in the backstory of ''{{Simoun}}'':
