I personally have not encountered this issue . I believe that most women merely want to be respected and treated as equal, no problem here ! My best pals have usually been women and never had one try to dominate me yet!
I don't know of too many women who have every wished to rule over anyone let alone dominate men. They just want the same respect, rights, treatment and pay without having to do more and be even better than men to get it. A few of us old grannies are pretty tired and impatient.

@Vanjo_tan: There are men who consider women domineering if they refuse to be dominated by men. Is this what you mean? Why do most women not want to be dominated by men? Because I don't know where you live, but women dominating men has been anything but the norm in my 64 years of living.
I don't think this is factually so. Testosterone fuels dominance behaviors in most mammals, but women have some, just not as much as the average male. There are some women with higher dominance numbers than some men, but the bell-shaped curve for women is slightly left of that for men. Women do not like to be controlled, but they don't mind being led, as long as the yoke is easy and the burden is light. Men do not mind if a woman has a dominant side, but they want to be significant in her life-- tough if she can do everything better than you.
They might seem that way because they have gone a little overboard. Seems to me that America doesn't have the sexist problem though anymore. But I still think that men were created to be the protectors and leaders of the household.
Most women want to be treated with respect and feel that their opinions count. It is hard to be submissive to a man if he is not a good leader of the family. My mother always thought that there were certain things that a woman could not do. She was from a small community where the men dominated and the women and children were not allowed to voice opinions. I want to believe that a woman of today has more opportunities than ever before to go after her dreams. I was the first woman in my family to earn a Masters degree. Go women! We've come a long way baby!
