Is a woman brutalized for spectacle?

Browse movies, tv shows, books and more where a woman is brutalized for spectacle.
Many women are victims of physical violence and abuse. Women in media are often made into narrative props that get used as targets for violence, for shock value. This may overlap with some cases of other categories, but encompasses the broader range of situations where women are made into hapless victims of brutal treatment, for shock. Being able to know, beforehand, whether a piece of media includes this trope would be greatly beneficial to many women.

Female characters die and are injured, but most of the scenes aren't particularly gendered and are plot-important. In terms of triggers, the most potentially upsetting instance occurs during the climax, which has DV themes contextually. That said, the character survives to the end and appears in one of the last scenes recovering in a hospital.

Yes but it happens to male characters too and is all consensual.
The “talk to me” game is what I’m talking about

A woman is put in a death trap (she survives) and is later seen with mild injuries. A other and daughter are taken hostage, they're crying and menaced with a gun. The film goes to great length to show how scared they are. However, the overwhelming majority of the violence is committed against men

A fight scene between a woman and a non-binary character which is demanded by the main character but appears to be consensual (pirate “shenanigans”) ?

There are often murders of women, some more violent than others, but equally as many violent murders of men in the series. It does not feel like the violence is focused on women

Jaiden is repeatedly killed for points in a game that is, for the person running it, a spectacle. It does not particularly come across as spectacle for the players who kill her.

This depends on your sensitivity, but during the Manberg vs Pogtopia Arc, Niki is heavily targeted by Manberg and made a spectacle of. It’s just Minecraft violence and trapping her in the ground or a cage iirc? But still

There is some dialogue that makes it clear they kidnapped a young girl as a trophy. Who they kept on display until she rotted away. They have an unknown amount of people they have done this to, as this is a common thing to occur.

Not specifically, and not purposefully.

(SPOILERS)

There are a few attacks aimed at human characters by non-human characters throughout the film. One female character is mauled as a child by a chimpanzee in a flashback scene, and while the attack is off-screen, we do hear her scream cut off by the sound of her mauling. She survives the attack, but her resulting disfigurement is later briefly seen. The attack is specifically referred to as "a spectacle."

Other scenes involve human characters being attacked in a group, with a couple female characters screaming or being injured.
