This page is devoted to all warrior women.
Sister site to Mystic Queens
omen warriors are hard to find sometimes. Usually they're depicted in comic books or films wearing chain mail bikinis (personally I think a lady can wear such a thing and still be a strong woman...) Through out history, there have been real women warriors. In Japan, the Kunochi (female ninjas) were more feared by the Samurai because they were more powerful (not so much physically but from a decieving women's charms). A naginata (a long pole arm weapon with a knife-like blade on the end) was (and is) the traditional weapon of woman in Japan.
n popular culture the Lady Warrior is often depicted
as half naked, clad in a chain mail bikini. In some fantasy
artwork (Boris Vallejo art in particular) they're almost
completely naked! During the 80's, several Sword &Sorcery
films came out (Conan the Barbarian, The Beastmaster, Red Sonja.)
It could be expected that some female flesh would be exposed at
one point or another....film by men for young men....but I quite
like the Conan movies ^^;
