Women from all walks of life?peasants, queens, princesses, wives, mothers, and sisters?have fought for freedom and honor throughout history. These brave (and sometimes bloodthirsty) women have been too often lost in the male-dominated annals of military history. In this fun, informative, and beautifully designed volume, the true stories of women from around the globe come to life, including the Amazons; Lozen, Apache warrior; Tomoe Gozen of Japan; Queen Boudicca of the Celts; Lakshmibai of India, and the Trung sisters of Vietnam. But women warriors aren’t just ancient mythology; also featured are the modern women who grace the playing fields, small and big screen, comic books, and the political arena?from Joan of Arc to Mother Teresa and Madeline Albright to the Powerpuff Girls.

Blackwell North Amer
Women Warriors combines myth, folklore, and profiles of both historic and living legends to form a playful celebration of women's fiercest role models from around the world, from Apache warrior Lozen to Lakshmibai of India, Aung San Suu Kyi to The Powerpuff Girls.
