I've been watching a particular TV show[1] on Netflix. At one point, the father of the monster-hunter family tells his daughter, "Our sons are trained to be soldiers. Our daughters, to be leaders."

There are ways to argue this away -- maybe most of the daughters choose to become accountants and plumbers and bakery owners instead -- but it really sounds like un-self-aware normalization of a 10:1 gender ratio.

(Admittedly, said daughter shows a strong interest in short- and medium-distance combat, and she's not nearly as weaselly or pushy as any of her male relatives that we've met. We see them maneuvering her in "leadership", boy-king-style. Maybe her father's just spinning her a line for weaselly convenience.)

[1] The quote I'm about to give is a mild spoiler, so I'm not giving the name of the show directly.

Forgive the late reply, I'm behind on reading DW

My own fanon on that one is that alpha werewolves tend to be female more often than male, and male hunters were having some real problems thinking like their opponents, until they found out the women in the family had better luck giving the orders. (I'm not really up on the meta in that fandom, so I have no idea how much I may overlap or contradict with others' ideas on the matter.)
