A correspondent asks Geek Feminism Blog how to write a scene where a superheroine gets beat up. He gets a good response, but I would add something:

Do your research. Watch video of women boxing, or wrestling. I think there's a women's version of MMA now, too. Or go to a dojo where there are women. I know they exist, I learned ju jitsu from a woman. Watch "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon".

And never, ever forget that that fighting expresses character and mood.
