Data scientist David Robinson tracked the proximity of verbs to gender across 100,000 stories. She screams, cries and rejects. He kidnaps, rescues and beats.
I think this paints a somewhat dark picture of gender roles within typical story plots. Women are more likely to be in the role of victims- "she screams", "she cries", or "she pleads." Men tend to be the aggressor: "he kidnaps" or "he beats". Not all male-oriented terms are negative- many, like "he saves"/"he rescues" are distinctly positive- but almost all are active rather than receptive.
The chart on which types of violence are associated with men and women is predictable stuff: poison from the ladies, beatings from the gentlemen.
