* In the ''[[Literature/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.

* The Creator/UrsulaKLeGuin short story ''The Matter of Seggri'' takes place on a planet where, due to unexplained genetic circumstances, there are sixteen adult women for every adult man. The result is a society in which women run everything, and men are made to live isolated from wider society in "castles". They're seen primarily as sources of sex and entertainment, and mentally unfit for education or participation in society.
** A later story in the same anthology, ''Solitude'' features a planet after a huge population crash. There is very little civilization at all, but the women live in semi-villages called "auntrings" and the men live as scattered hermits (both stories are in an anthology called ''The Birthday of the World'').

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', the town of Tel Mora is ruled by a man-hating female Telvanni elder who only allows women to live there. However, no one else is particularly misogynistic and a male protagonist is free to wander around and speak to people, although the elder won't give you any {{Fetch Quest}}s. She's incredibly hard to get her vote as Hortator, although, since it's House Telvanni, she can simply be killed.

* In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'', ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls''
** Throughout
the town series, this seems to be the case for the priesthood of Dibella, the [[OurGodsAreDifferent Aedric Divine]] Goddess of Beauty, who is also associated with the more carnal and sexual aspects of love. There doesn't seem to be a specific rule precluding men from her priesthood, but the vast majority of it is made up of women nonetheless.
** In ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'', all of the [[AmazonBrigade guards, retainers]], shopkeepers, and other service providers in
Tel Mora Mora, home of the [[DoesNotLikeMen man-hating]] [[TheMagocracy Telvanni]] councilor Mistress Dratha, are female.

* In Oleg Makushkin's ''Crystal Lattice'', the Gaian Republic dominates the Eurasian continent in the distant future. Unlike their enemies in the Cyberempire (North America), the Gaians eschew cybernetics (at least in their bodies) and opt for genetic engineering to improve themselves. However, only about 10% of the population are males. Why? It's explained that, for some unknown reason, they haven't yet figured out how to grow genetically-engineered males, only genetically-engineered females. They could grow plain-old males in tubes, but why bother, when men can be born naturally, thus freeing up the tubes for more super-females. Thus, most jobs (including ruling and soldiering) are done by women, and men tend to be relegated to entertainment and low-ranking jobs. Heterosexual relationships are forbidden due to the male deficit, and Gaian women are taught that no woman has a right to exclusively claim a man for herself, as that would go against the common good. Most men are required to regularly attend the so-called Dating Houses, where they get to have sex with any of the women, who go there. The rest are not required to but still go out of a sense of duty. [[AManIsAlwaysEager Not that men mind this setup]]. Strangely enough, any Cybernetic man captured in battle can choose to stay in the Republic, as long as he agrees to have all the implants removed, but he is then sterilized, which makes absolutely no sense.

Strangely enough, any Cybernetic man captured in battle can choose to stay in the Republic, as long as he agrees to have all the implants removed, but he is then sterilized, which makes absolutely no sense. The Republic is a cashless society, where a person's rank determines her rations and other things like clothing and luxuries. Apparently, it's taken as the axiom that all women want to look great (note: the author is a man), so clothing and accessories are used as incentives to get women to rank up by doing their tasks well. Homosexual relationships are fairly common, although most women are at least bisexual and some are strictly hetero.
