Global in its focus and pan-historical in its scope, Women Warriors includes the stories of scores of women leaders, soldiers, pirates, outlaws, terrorists, and cavalry leaders, from ancient civilizations to modern conflicts, from Egypt to the American South. This compelling book challenges the notion that only men are capable of fighting in or leading battle. Qualitatively, women are shown to have been equal warriors with men. Providing the most complete, comprehensive account of the female martial heritage available, this book challenges traditional notions of gender by interrogatingon the power and place of the warrior image and on its historical genesis.
