* In the same vein, ''LightNovel/TaishoBaseballGirls'', only even more so a JackieRobinsonStory because as the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin name implies]], the story takes place in the Taishō period (early 1920s), where StayInTheKitchen was still a very common belief.

** Lisa was also the first girl to join either of Springfield's peewee hockey teams, where she takes the position of goalie (against Bart who's the opposing team's point-scorer). Needless to say, the game ends on a penalty shot, allowing the Simpson kids to go one-on-one...

* In ''Literature/TheManWhoBroughtTheDodgersBackToBrooklyn'', the 1988 Brooklyn Dodgers sign pitcher Ruth Smelkinson, making her the first woman to play in Major League Baseball, and it's framed as a deliberate parallel to the real life Robinson story. It's actually downplayed a bit, as all Ruth really has to do is impress team owner Bobby Hanes with her pitching prowess (without any mention of him seeking league approval when he signs her), and public support is largely on her side.

* [[DragonridersOfPern Menolly]] in ''Dragonsinger'' and ''Dragonsong'' by Anne [=McCaffrey=] is the first woman to apprentice herself to the guild of Harpers in generations. There were in fact female Harpers before Menolly, but by the time Menolly comes along the population in general (particularly, her own family) is unaware of the precedent. Despite having the sponsorship of the Masterharper himself, several of the Harpers refuse to teach Menolly or take her seriously.

* Creator/BillBurr had a stand-up bit about this, wherein he mocked the overuse of this trope in film, to the point that they were beginning to run out of sports to tell the Jackie Robertson Story with.
