* The Michigan Womyn's Music Festival establishes an all-female enclave for the duration of the festival. There were some serious rumbles over who was oppressing whom when they banned transwomen from the festival.
* Some universities have Women's Centers that permit only female membership or have women-only "safe spaces". (These days they usually say a woman is anybody who chooses to identify herself as one.)

** ''Fanfic/AMightyDemonSlayerGroomsSomePonies'': Queen Rosey comments that the Flutter Ponies keep their stallions at home and safely tucked away, looking after the children, instead of allowing them to roam far and free as the Dream Valley ponies did.
** ''Fanfic/StallionsOnStrike'' actually focuses on Big Mac starting a stallions' rights movement to protest how stallions in Equestria are the ones who are expected to do all the hard labor, chores and fighting while government positions and influential, easy or glamorous jobs go to mares almost exclusively.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'' fandom, portraying Equestria as a LadyLand of some stripe or another is quite popular, largely due to the majority of the main and background characters being female, especially in the early seasons and to actual equine biology -- real-life herd grazers like horses are quite definitely ''not'' anything like the stereotypical portrayal of a pack centered on an Alpha Male and his meek, compliant harem; as someone put it on the ScienceMarchesOn page on this very wiki, the male's actual role is "basically a mobile sperm bank". Its exact depiction varies from stallions as the recipients of well-intentioned sexual patrionism (reversed chivalry/machoism, essentially), to full-fledged sexual repression, to simply instincts/laws that support the GenderRarityValue of the stallions.
** ''FanFic/{{Xenophilia}}'' posits that [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Equestria]] is one of these; it's not as bad as it used to be, but stallions are in very much the same situation women were here on Earth when mainstream acceptance of equality between the sexes was still a relatively new phenomenon, except that [[GenderRarityValue females outnumber males about three to one]].

** In ''Videogame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', Gerudo City has a strict ban on males from entering, meaning that for Link to get in he has to [[DisguisedInDrag disguise himself in women's clothing.]]]] This is {{Deconstructed}}, as well: the reason for the ban is not out of animosity towards men, but rather to encourage Gerudos to venture out into the world and find a mate instead of settling. This tradition isn't without its difficulties, however: Gerudos tend to be awkward when talking to Hylian men, and there is a special class in Gerudo Town dedicated to the art of woeing a potential mate.

** Creator/DianeDuane's ''Literature/{{Rihannsu}}'' series (not formally part of the novelverse due to continuity issues, but often referenced by it) presents the Romulans as a {{downplayed}} example. They're gender-equal in theory, but in practice are mildly matriarchal: women outnumber men in the military and a male uses his mother's or wife's clan name. This is due to the lasting influence of the "Ruling Queen" Vriha t'Rehu, the first person to successfully claim rulership of Romulus and Remus (until the Remans overthrew her).



* In ''Literature/{{Animorphs}}'', one of the alien species, the Helmacrons, are female dominated, with the males serving as slaves. By the end of their first appearance, the animorphs have convinced the male Helmacrons to stand up for their rights, leading to a civil war.

* ''Franchise/MassEffect'' has several examples: The Asari are a OneGenderRace of women and the few men on their planets are all aliens. On Tuchanka, Wrex set up for the female Krogan to form their own all-female clans. Since they are just as big and strong as the males and there are only very few remaining fertile females in the entire species, all of the male clans want to be on their good side or they simply won't get any more chances to breed new sons for their own clans. And even if one clan would try to capture females, the female clans would just have to ask all the other male clans to get them back. And then there are also the Salarians who similar to insects consist of a small number of female matriarchs and much larger numbers of male drones. While only a very small minority politics is the exclusive domain of women, with the notable exception of their representative on the Citadel Council.

* In ''Literature/{{Victoria}}'', Azania is a science fiction example. Founded by feminists revolting against patriarchy in a post-apocalyptic world, by the time of the story it has become a high-tech Amazonian nation whose mostly lesbian inhabitants have replaced marriage and motherhood with [[HomosexualReproduction eugenic cloning]]. Unfortunately, most of them are also [[StrawFeminist genocidally hostile]] to all men.
