** 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 wooing a potential mate. And several married Gerudo openly vent to you about the law meaning that when market season comes and they come back to the city to sell their wares, they have to leave their husbands and any male children back home and don't like being separated from them.

* 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.

** Throughout the 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.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/BodyBlows'': The planet Feminon introduced in Body Blows Galactic is this as an entire planet. To quote the other Wiki "An Earth-type planet ruled by women, where men are only accepted as lesser beings."

* English writer Edmund Cooper wrote ''Five to Twelve'' which is the future proportion of men to women, follows a male activist trying to get rights for men - turns out his sperm can only produce male children. And "Who Needs Men?" aka "Gender Genocide" men got wiped out except for some enclaves up in Scotland (parthenogenesis is used for reproduction) A female security officer is captured by an outlaw male and well RapeIsLove right?

* 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.]]

** In ''Storm Over Warlock'', Shann Lantee, and to a lesser extent Ragnar Thorvald, demonstrate that human males can, which makes them acceptable.
** In ''Ordeal In Otherwhere'', Charis Nordholm is brought to deal with them as a woman. The last woman had been driven mad by their psychic contact, but Charis is taken in and trained. The males of the race, however, receive off-world assistance that lets them nullfiy the Power, leading to many issues. [[spoiler:At the end, Thorvald appoints her to deal with the Wyvern cities on the basis of his broad emergency powers and the obvious need to appease them.]]
** In ''Forerunner Foray'', Ziantha scorns Riss Lantee's claim to have been Wyvern-trained: everyone knows they don't deal with males.

* The backstory of Creator/LarryNiven's immortals in ''A World Out Of Time'' is that, not needing each other for reproduction, and biologically arrested before hitting puberty, Boys and Girls formed two entirely separate and occasionally warring societies (both implied to be screwed up equally, but in different ways). When Earth's climate radically shifted, the Boys occupied the only remaining livable land in Antarctica, while the Girls, being situated closer to the equator, died off.
