Don't expect to see men hurting/killing women in media anytime soon. Or ever.
For that matter, displaying the combatants as equals can probably be considered sexist. Y'all know how Anita said: "The harmful misogynist myth this trope reinforces". Well the harmful misogynist myth this trope reinforces could be argued to be that violence against women is a 50/50 conflict between good and evil and that hurting the woman was an act of triumph.
So yea, don't look for "equality" here.
