Dragon Lady is a detrimental stereotype depicting East Asian women as strong, deceitful, domineering or mysterious. Movies from the early century have portrayed this stereotypical version of the Asian woman. The Dragon Lady has the power to hypnotize her male rivals, gains trust by seducing them, and when they least expect it, she rids of them through sabotage or backstabbing. One of my favorite actresses, Anna May Wong, was remembered for the stereotypical portrayal of the “Dragon Lady”. -G

^ this as well.
Also, I did some research and the Dragon Lady stereotype is not limited to just Asian-American women, it can also be associated with women of other races. For example, De’Londa Brice from the television series The Wire was labeled a “Dragon Lady” by the character Bodie, and Meryl Streep's character Miranda Priestly from The Devil Wears Prada was called a “Dragon Lady” throughout the film. The term is applied to powerful Asian women but at times it’s also used to describe women who are powerful, cold-hearted, manipulative, mysterious, sadistic etc.
In 1815, white women owned about 24 percent of the slaves in St Lucia; 12 per cent of the slaves on properties of more than 50 slaves, and 48 per cent of the properties with less than 10 slaves. In Barbados in 1817, less than five of the holdings of 50 slaves or more were owned by white women, but they owned 40 percent of the properties with less than 10 slaves…
White women also owned more female slaves than male slaves. The extensive female ownership of slaves in the towns was matched by the unusually high proportion of females in the slave population; female slave owners owned more female slaves than male slave owners….
From these data the image that emerges of the white female slaveowner is that she was generally urban, in possession of less than ten slaves, the majority of whom were female. That female slaveowners generally owned female slaves, indicates the nature of enterprises, and hence labour regimes, managed and owned by white women. It is reasonable, then, to argue that any conceptualization of urban slavery, especially with reference to the experiences of enslaved black women, should proceed with an explicit articulation of white women are principal slaveowners."
Sunny Woan, the author of White Sexual Imperialism: A Theory on Asian Feminist Jurisprudence, stated white sexual imperialism, through rape and war, created the hyper-sexualized stereotype of Asian women. This stereotype in turn fostered the over-prevalence of Asian women in pornography, the mail-order bride phenomenon, the Asian fetish syndrome, and worst of all, sexual violence against Asian women. The hyper-sexualization of Asian women is universal, not exclusively in North America and Europe. Woc are hyper-sexualized to the same extent but hyper-sexualized differently. For example, Animalistic black woman, Submissive Asian woman, Spicy, fiery Latina, Exotic Native woman etc. -G
