Jim - You've got a lot of good points here, but one I must disagree with. Women also enjoy being the alpha - the woman in charge - and get pleasure just as men do from being high status. It may manifest itself differently, but women have the same capacity for evil as men do. Frankly, a strong female villain is a treat, provided she's capable and clever rather than petty or stupid. Although for my personal taste, capable and clever are my criteria for enjoying a villain of any gender.


I suppose for both sexes this is the flip side of Sarah's "fitting in" motivation. Having the power to make others fit in with you.
