* Creator/JohnWyndham wrote a LadyLand story, ''Consider Her Ways'', where the all-female society is based on the society of ants, with predictably dire consequences. Unlike Russ, he doesn't seem to have heard of lesbians.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Superjail}}'': One could argue that Ultraprison is this, aside from having a [[{{Transsexual}} Transman]] detention officer.

** At least one version said Themyscira was almost a female Valhalla, only instead of soldiers who fell in battle, it was populated by women who fell to domestic violence.

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, along with the issue of what happens to any male children born in a no-man zone.

This is a common portrayal of Amazon societies dating back to the original Amazons of Myth/ClassicalMythology. The Greeks depicted 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.

** Paraguay after the WarOfTheTripleAlliance even more so: The Pope even allowed polygamy for a while, because 90% of the male population (an inverse Decimation if you will) got themselves killed.

Considering the large number of male-dominated societies in existence it is understandable that fiction is open to the idea of the women occasionally wielding ultimate power. Lady Land extends the idea to an extreme level.

If there are no males at all this becomes a OneGenderRace. Naturally, a proper Lady Land will be ruled by a {{Matriarchy}}. See ImprobablyFemaleCast for when the cast is mostly or entirely female without an adequate explanation in the setting. Contrast NoWomansLand, the all-male equivalent. See also PersecutionFlip.

* In the second TheHeroesOfOlympus novel we discover that amazon.com is run by actual amazons. They ''like'' men - in their place - which seems to be providing manual labor for the company. We never find out how the men feel about it but for at least some being sex-objects to beautiful, buff amazons might seem like a pretty sweet deal.
