English problem

Amanda is a human being with dual characteristics of feminine and masculine traits thus she is in conflict between being a stereotypical female character and an independent female character.
Should I omit the comma here and what would be a way to condense it? 

Marisa S.

 I think it can be made both more concise and clearer in this fashion:  
Amanda's feminine, stereotypically dependent traits conflict with her more masculine, stereotypically independent side.

Thank you, I did not go into analysis of construction as well as meaning. I just gave her a quick example to try additional sentences on her own.
