* Creator/MaryRenault tells this anecdote about AlexanderTheGreat in ''Literature/ThePersianBoy'': When the Greek army invaded Persia and captured most of the royal family, Alexander brought the royal ladies some yarn for weaving. Only slaves did this in Persia, and when he was informed, he apologized and said his mother and sisters did this all the time and he had wanted to give his hostages something to do. The Queen Mother became his friend after this. This is based in real events, like much of Renault's work; it's in Quintus Curtius.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Film/{{Suffragette}}'' this trope is, as befitting the time, played completely straight. Almost all the protagonists who are shown working are laundering clothes (the one exception being a woman who works in her husband's pharmacy)... a not only time-consuming and boring, but also very hard and dangerous job. The protagonist's mother died in a work accident. Most women take their infants to work regardless, as they need the money.
