I'm upset about what Superman and Flash lost, but the thread is not about them.
I was just trying to point out that, far from being a conspiracy against the female bat-characters, this has happened across the entire DC line.

It wouldn't be so troubling if at least the male members of the Bat family suffered a similar fate. But most of them remain untouched or had - at best - cosmetic changes (Nightwing) and - at worst - part of their history erased (Tim, who lost his time in Young Justice, though that is not stopping him from now being leader of the Teen Titans)
There's something called the Smurfette Principle, and since Batwoman is not featured in any of the other bat books and is not even part of the Court of Owls, this seems to be the rule for the new Bat family. As many boys as you want and one girl.

Dick became Robin at 16 now.
Batwoman is not even part of the Court of Owls, something that should be targeting all members of the Bat family. Even Batwing is involved, yet Kate and Cass aren't? Ridiculous. The only female bat that has been in almost every bat book is Babs.
