Because women still want men to rescue them

chess white knight

Women will complain they are miserable because of their man and the way he treats them, but they still expect him to fix it.

They're waiting for him to ride in on his white horse.

Women can't forgive men for being human. It's not part of the deal anyway - the deal being a woman will be less than human so that he can be more than human. Women want to be the weak ones in the relationship; they want to be looked after.

Women are resentful when a man makes them unhappy and he can do this by things as diverse as: not asking her how her day was in the right tone of voice through to being unable to fix her abusive parents. Because she is still waiting for him to rescue her, and his inability to do so is revealed more and more over time, her resentment that he can't builds proportionately over time.

in romance novels men always rescue women, so women have no need to rescue themselves - nor be ashamed of their desire to be rescued. In fact what often happens is as soon as this desire is met, women find their own independance.
