* In the ''Literature/WheelOfTime'' series, the very nature of magic is split into separate male and female halves, saidar and saidin, making every female channeler's weave (i.e. spell she casts) a complete, utter mystery to men, and vice versa.
** In addition, the Aiel (a ProudWarriorRace) have female-specific societies such as Maidens of the Spear, who never even allow men into their tents, except for [[spoiler:the Dragon Reborn]]. Any man who needs to relay a message must do so to a woman who will pass the message along.

* In ''{{Traveller}}'' the Kenningsboken is a partial example. It is a book few Sword Worlder males read all the way through and while it contains lore on child care and farm management it is rumored to be a psionic exercise manual.

In RealLife cultures, this sort of thing is mostly just details about female biology (pregnancy, childbirth, birth control, menstruation, etc.) that men [[TooMuchInformation simply don't need (or want) to know]] and women don't care to discuss in mixed company. But it's a rare work of epic fantasy that's willing to admit its "Women's Mysteries" are little more than a FantasyCounterpartCulture equivalent of that special sixth grade health class for girls.
