The problem with all of Tolkein's work is the complete lack of female characters, particularly in The Hobbit, it's no surprise that he'll have to add a female character or two to redress the balance.

Eowyn is the only strong female in the books of LOTR, hence Arwen getting a bit 'beefed up' in the films.

Let's not even start on issues of race in Tolkein's work.
