2002 Mazda Protege Question: Are these prices and repair recommendations legit?

 

Question

My dealership has recommended the following work be done on my car and while I know I need brake work, I just feel like these are trumped up repairs/prices because I'm a woman.

Front Brake Pads $290
Replace Front Rotors $170
Rear Brake Shoes $250
Brake Flush $170
Power Steering Flush $175
Replace Front Tie Rod Boots $240
4 Wheel alignment $89.95

    Alignment, and brake rotor replacement are fair, the rest are high, power steering and brake flush are $100 too much each!
