* In the ''[[CoDominium Warworld]]'' novel ''Blood Vengeance'', a hidden society of "Amazons" lives in an isolated valley and is largely regarded as legend. They reproduce by having a pact with several nomad tribes who, every few years, return to a meeting ground and mate with the women warriors; male children are given to the tribes (or [[UnusualEuphemism "to the earth"]]-- i.e., killed), and females are kept and raised by the women. The pact also, of course, includes vows of absolute secrecy about the whole arrangement.

* A generational version has happened in the past after wars. After WorldWarI and 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.

* In ''Literature/{{Hellspark}}'', Oloitokitok's home planet has a society where women rule and men are regarded as property; the fact that he's managed to obtain an education and a scientific career says a lot about him (and about his wife, whose declaration that she thinks of him as a sister -- ie., a fellow human being worthy of being related to as an equal -- is in context powerful and moving).

* In the ''AWizardInRhyme'' fantasy novel series a land of Amazons is introduced where it's fine for males to come 'visit' in order to ensure production of more Amazons but only for a limited time (a week I think), stay just a day too long and the male is hunted and killed by the Amazons. The Amazons suffer horribly (so to speak) when the main protagonist and another young male in love independently around the same time seek to pass through the land as a man who refuses to mate and stay true to his loved one is considered a prize so rare that such a man can stay within its borders as long as desired and have virtually anything within reason he desires.

* ''Manga/OnePiece'' has the island of Amazon Lily, home of the Kuja tribe, which consists entirely of women trained in the ways of the warrior and where men are forbidden. While it is stated that women of the island leave and return pregnant (and ''always'' give birth to daughters), the population at large knows so little about men that it takes the eldest one in a group to even ''identify'' naked Luffy as male. In a semi-example, there is also the Momoiro Island, home to the Kamabakka Kingdom, where everybody is a transvestite.
** And guess [[ChivalrousPervert which one]] of the Straw Hats gets [[IronicHell trapped there...]]

* Appparently, Earth in ''Anime/ArmitageIII'' is this. {{Straw Feminist}}s have achieved such political power that women's rights have soared past "equal to men" to "the status of White South Africans during Apartheid". Much of Mars' human population is male because A: men who are sick of women being in charge flock there, and B: women don't want to live in a colony where they have to give up their legal supremacy. In fact, this ultimately leads to the threat of TheWarOfEarthlyAggression that drives the series' plot: [[spoiler: upon finding out that Martians have succeeded in producing "Thirds", a category of RidiculouslyHumanRobot that goes beyond a mere SexBot to being able to ''reproduce with humans'', the feminist political group panics at this threat to their power. They demand Mars cease producing Thirds and destroy the ones it has created, or else they will invade and force them to do. Even before open warfare erupts, they are willing to send assassins and saboteurs to force Martian compliance.]]

* ''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.
