* [[TheHyena Hyenas]] live in matriarchal packs, as do with Meerkats and Naked Rats.

* [[TheHyena Hyenas]] live in matriarchal packs, as do with packs and unusual for mammals, females are larger, stronger, and more aggressive than males. Meerkats and Naked Rats.naked mole-rats also live in female-dominated groups, with the mole-rates having a social structure very similar to that of bees or termites: a single dominate queen does all the breeding while the rest of the rats function as non-breeding workers that support the colony.



* A generational version has happened in the past after wars. After UsefulNotes/WorldWarI and UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, some remote villages lost so many of their marriage-age male population to battle that the very few men returning were a valuable commodity indeed - even if they were missing an arm or a leg.

France lost nearly an entire generation of men in World War I, leading to its end as a dominant military power.

In a Lady Land the population is predominantly female. Males may be considered inferior, used as [[SexSlave sex slaves]], or even [[{{Gendercide}} expelled or murdered]]. This may create problems by leaving said society with no obvious method of reproducing outside of the sex slaves option. There's a very good chance that this issue will be brought up in-story.

[[folder:Mythology]]
* As mentioned above, the Amazons. In some versions of mythology, men were not allowed to have any sexual relations with an Amazon, but once a year they would visit a nearby tribe to repopulate. If the children they had were male, they were either killed or left to fend for themselves in the wilderness. In other versions however, Theseus ends up marrying either Queen Hippolyta or her sister Antiope. Some Amazons also fought in the Trojan War, and other myths suggest that Alexander the Great had romances with them.
* In ''Argonautica'', Jason and the Argonauts come across the Island of Lemnos - populated entirely by women. They claim the rest of the men are away at war, but it's revealed that they've all been killed and sacrificed to Artemis. In the myths that say Atalanta was on the voyage - as [[TheSmurfettePrinciple the only female Argonaut]] - she is usually the one that discovers this. This isn't depicted in the Ray Harryhaussen film, but shows up in the Hallmark miniseries - [[CompositeCharacter where Lemnos seems to be combined with the Sirens]] as the women seduce the men with some kind of magic. In this version, Orpheus isn't seduced either because he's still [[TheLostLenore grieving for Eurydice]].

* Themyscira, Wonder Woman's home, in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague''. The fact that the League saved the inhabitants from Hades didn't save Wonder Woman from being banished for bringing men into their midst. Oddly, the men she was kicked out for bringing in were honored as heroes, as they enforced the rules more out of tradition and fear of the gods than genuine dislike, at least in that instance.
** Flash even tries to stand up against this, however Batman calms him down and points out it is just as hard or even harder for them to enforce the rule.
** Eventually, Hippolyta decided "screw it" and allowed Wonder Woman to come back, in order to help close the gates of Tartarus again. Then gave her full access of her powers.

* Deconstructed in ''WesternAnimation/WonderWoman'' - where being raised in a single gender society has resulted in Diana growing up inherently mistrustful of men. Part of her Aesop is learning that not all men are evil. Hippolyta is given a WhatTheHellHero from Persephone - who points out the hypocrisy of the queen getting to raise a daughter while none of them could.
--> '''Hippolyta:''' You were given a life of peace and beauty!
--> '''Persephone:''' And denied one of families and children. Yes the Amazons are warriors. But we are ''women'' too.



** However, in ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Friendship Is Magic]]'''s (2010) setting, Equestria is home to civilized ponies of both male and female persuasion. [[WordOfGod Lauren Faust]] explicitly says the guys are all working voluntarily for pay.
** For whatever it's worth, in RealLife, horses do behave in a matriarchal fashion.

This is a common portrayal of Amazon societies dating back to the original Amazons of Myth/ClassicalMythology. The Greeks portrayed the Amazons as {{Straw Feminist}}s to [[SpaceWhaleAesop "demonstrate"]] why women should StayInTheKitchen and not be allowed any power at all. This is an oddly easy construction regardless of whether the women in question are murderous or desperate as in either case the women are ''still'' centering their lives around men instead of trying to think of something else to do with their time. Some stories TakeAThirdOption and explore how a culture is affected the absence of men by giving the characters other motivations. The logical extreme is an AuthorTract of how women are better off without men. This genre is known as "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lesbian_utopia lesbian utopia]]" as it appeals to a group of people without any significant attraction or attachment to men.
