** The Fire Nation averts this, since women are at every level of authority - you see female [[EliteMooks Yu Yan Archers]], female guards, and no one is gonna tell [[HeroKiller Princess Azula]], Ty Lee, or Mai to stay behind unless they want to be chi-blocked into paralysis, skewered, or roasted. The only exception was in the finale when Azula was told to stay home by her father, but that was more due to her father seeing ''both'' of his children as rather disposable and not her gender. [[FreakOut She didn't take it well]]. Come the time of the SequelSeries, ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'', Zuko's daughter Izumi is the Firelord.

* ''VideoGame/ValkyriaChronicles4'' has a subversion: Riley thinks that Claude is pulling this when he orders her not to fight in one level, but he turns out to have a perfectly sensible reason: Their transport was crippled, and in addition to being a grenadier she was also a skilled mechanic, so the best way she could help the unit at that time was to help fix the engines so they could escape rather that fighting. She concedes the point, sits out that level, but returns to the list of playable characters in the following level when that justification no longer applies.

** A HotSpringsEpisode reveals that this is general attitude of the Empire.

Added DiffLines:

* Somewhat downplayed, but present in ''Film/CaptainMarvel.'' No one in the present day doubts Vers's skill, with those trying to keep her down doing so because they fear her power, not because of her gender, but any of her flashbacks ''not'' focused on plot-information instead focus on sexism she faced from her childhood up to serving in the Air Force.


* UsefulNotes/NaziGermany was well known for this. The famous German phrase "Kinder, Küche, Kirche" (translated as "children, kitchen, church") is nowadays often attributed to the Nazi Party, but it had actually been in use since the 1890s. The Nazis still saw motherhood as the most important duty for women, and actively discriminated against women who worked outside the home. Mostly they hung on to this attitude even when it had clearly become a bad idea (e.g. they didn't replace enlisted factory workers with women to anywhere near the degree that the Allied countries did, which impacted industry output quite a bit). On the other hand, they did allow women to join the military, in non-combat roles.

This caused quite a shock when Germany first fought the Soviet Union, which had women serving in combat roles in every branch of the military. The fact that the Soviets had women driving tanks, women flying combat patrols in fighter planes, and women lugging rifles in the infantry was cited as proof of communist and Slavic degeneracy by the Nazis.


* ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventureBattleTendency'': PlayedStraight, albeit briefly, when Joseph offers to fight Kars in Lisa Lisa's place on the basis that she, despite being a skilled Hamon User and Joseph's teacher, is still a woman. Lisa Lisa [[WHatTheHellHero calmly calls him out on it]] and Joseph promptly backs down and lets the fight continue [[note]]Remember, this takes place in the late 1930s, so this is most likely a case of DeliberateValuesDissonance[[/note]].

* ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'': This was the motivation for the "Dumpster Killer(s)" who Batman dealt with in several issues from the 1980s. They felt that feminism was making women act above their station in life, so they killed and mutilated them to send them a message. Or they were just jerks.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer}}'' most human nations are like this, though there is some leaway (particularly in specialist areas like magic) and (like the medieval/early renaissance Europe they [[FantasyCounterpartCulture they tend to resemble]]) social class count more for gender and noblewomen can be quite powerful. The elven cultures and vampires are fairly equalitarian (as with 40k above this is not really reflected in the models for the elves, though female vampire models are far more common) and the dwarves go in for an "equal but different" approach, with dwarven women very rarely leaving their holds but being very powerful within them. With most of the other factions the question doesn't arise; orcs, goblins and ogres don't seem to ''have'' women (their reproduction processes are unclear), skaven females are non-sapient and lizardmen are poorly named as they are in fact genderless life forms created from magical spawning pools.
