Though true, it revolves mostly around male characters, one cannot read JRR Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" without revering the feminist tempest that is Eowyn. You can call him a misogynist all you want - all accusations of the like disappear at the sight of Eowyn brandishing a sword, riding a horse and fighting like all the men put together.

Then there's JK Rowling's "Harry Potter", which yet again, like with Tolkien, may revolve mostly around male characters, but I don't think there has so far been one woman there presented as weak-charactered. *thinks again* okay, there were. But really - professor McGonagall, Molly Weasley, Hermione Granger - all strong, determined, trouser-wearing female characters.
