Would "feminine qualities" serve a woman very well during the zombie apocalypse?

Yes.

First of all, your assumption is what the game makes; that physical strength and power structures of domination are the only way to thrive in such a world. It isn’t. Remember the wolf and scar conflict? Remember that there was a cease fire, until “some idiot started shooting?”. All that death could be avoided. Sadly the game passes over this idea as quickly as it comes up.

Secondly, Jackson is a functioning society isolated from all that. They have electricity and they farm stuff. And yet, it is a town of no feminine expression. Do you really think not a single woman at the dance would have wanted to wear a dress? You can wear what you want, but isn’t it weird not a single woman does? Or even a man choosing to be flamboyant? Such diversity of gender expression is absent.

Third, physical capability is not exclusively a masculine trait. When your life is on the line defend yourself. But it’s what happens in between that matters.
