    I just read an essay by a feminist thinker on this very thing. She concluded that "heroism" in most peoples' minds is a list of masculine qualities, meanwhile the word "heroine" conjurs up images of a woman in distress. She argued that we should include some feminine qualities in our pantheon of hero qualities, such as nurturing or negotiation skills. Also important, she points out that men can posses these "feminine" skills and that it does not make them less of a man, but more of a well-rounded individual.
