* A brief clip from ''Series/ThirtyRock'' shows that Liz sued her high school for the right to play football, despite the fact that she was absolutely abysmal. It's implied she did it just so she could be a feminist crusader rather than because she wanted to play the game.

* Also, ''NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'' parodied this, with [[BlackBestFriend Cookie]] trying out for cheerleading, and getting laughed off because he's a boy. He sues them, and gets a tryout, leading to this quote, summing up the tryout.

* This is the outcome in the film ''Film/LittleGiants''. Becky's dad was pissed that she wasn't chosen for the town's football team because she was girl and so he [[StartMyOwn started his own team]] and challenged the official team.
* In ''Film/ShaolinSoccer'', [[spoiler:Mui shows up at the end of the championship game in a BigDamnHeroes moment to counteract the Evil Team with [[ChekhovsSkill her Tai-chi skills]]]].
* ''Film/ShesTheMan'', the modern re-imagining of Creator/WilliamShakespeare's ''Theatre/TwelfthNight'', centers around this trope. The girl's soccer team is cut, the girls are denied the chance to try out for the guys' team because "girls can't beat boys," so Amanda Bynes transfers schools in drag and HilarityEnsues.

* In ''Film/{{Thor}}'', it's implied that Lady Sif had to pull one in order to be taken seriously as a warrior.
-->'''Thor''': And who proved wrong all who scoffed at the idea that a young maiden could be one of the fiercest warriors this realm has ever known?\\
'''Sif''': ''I'' did.\\
'''Thor''': ...true, but I supported you!

** Wrestling/{{Lita}} played a sort of [[MamaBear Sister Bear]] role when her boyfriend Wrestling/MattHardy was battling Wrestling/TheUndertaker at the 2002 ''Royal Rumble''. She crashed the Rumble Match and she and Matt double-teamed the "Deadman." They didn't get very far, but it was still pretty {{Badass}}.

* Aki finding her need-for-speed and becoming a Riding Duelist in StoryArc 3 of ''Anime/YuGiOh5Ds''. When getting her license, misogynists try to sabotage her test because she is both her woman and she is the only one who passed through the preliminary tests. Not only Aki manages to handle the situation and won her Riding Duel (against Ushio), [[{{Badass}} Jack]] beats the crap out of the guys.

** In December 2015, Princess Kimberlee became the first woman to hold the Chikara Grand Championship - that's the promotion's top title, by the way - pinning Hallowicked to do so.

* Parodied in "Big Time Jobs," an episode of ''Series/BigTimeRush.'' Carlos takes the position of Gustavo's production assistant, and is forced to deal with an espresso machine named C.A.L. (a parody of a [[ASpaceOdyssey certain famous A.I.]]) that [[ItMakesSenseInContext eventually becomes sentient and attempts to take over the world by flooding it with foam.]] Kelly, Gustavo's assistant manager, tells Carlos that he'll have to deal with the problem on his own--until C.A.L. starts spouting sexist rhetoric ("WOMEN ARE WEAK"). She then takes a baseball bat to the machine.
