* ''Literature/Graceling'' is a subversion. Katsa is a fighter, hates dresses and elaborate hairstyles and make-up, and pointedly does not want children or marriage. Fire on the other hand isn't much of a fighter and loves dresses, flowers, and music. However, the narrative treats them equally, and Fire turns out to be just as dangerous and competent as Katsa.

** In general, the women who aren't {{Action Girl}}s or otherwise warlike are not demonized for knowing and ''enjoying'' feminine things like needlework (and some of the Action Girls, and the male knights, are shown doing needlework themselves). The overall [[AnAesop theme]] here is that it's equally okay to be a [[TomboyAndGirlyGirl tomboy or a girly girl]].

** In the first quartet, ''Litearture/SongOfTheLioness'', Alanna starts out hating the fact that she's a girl and wishing she were a boy because she wants to be a knight. She tells her brother that part part of her motivation for the switch is to go towards knighthood and away from ladyhood. Part of her CharacterDevelopment is coming to accept and enjoy her femininity even in the midst of her ''eight-year-long'' stint as a SweetPollyOliver. It does not detract in the least from the fact that she is badass and becomes a legendary knight--in the last book, her current lover Liam pitches a fit over her wearing a dress at one point because he can't fit her into a neat stereotype box when she's a warrior ''and'' feminine, serving as a portent to their eventual breakup.
