History and mythology abounds with tales of warriors. Men who acted as servants to powerful ideals, through fierce bravery in battle, either lived to celebrate and fight again, or lost their life in the field and gained special favor for their valor and sacrifice in the after-life. Lesser known are histories and mythologies of powerful female warriors, although women have fought in battles throughout the ages, and do still.

Evidence in history, anthropology, art, and mythology of women as warriors, knights, soldiers, heroes, protectors also exist as stories, remembered by those who want to remember. Women fight as soldiers in battles around the globe, further, the characteristics of a warrior are manifest in several roles women fulfill in daily living, historically and in the present, to whit, not only can women be warriors, women sometimes also identify as warriors in many ways for many reasons.

The characteristics of the warrior describe a tenacious individual, willing to fight for their cause, facing any range of consequences. The culture of the warrior includes a uniform, armor, and weapons. It involves ritual and training. The art of war not only creates the warrior, it is woven into culture and speaks through images and symbols. As for the warrior, underneath symbols of power, beyond tactical maneuvers of obfuscation and distraction, under the armor, are the small symbols close their heart, wrapping their wrist, or woven in their hair, touching their flesh, the miniature handmade symbols of faith, hope, love, reminders of home, parents, children, lovers, of any myriad of things that spoke to them with meaning enough to gird them against fear, superstition, loneliness, terror and grief.

Being a warrior is commonly viewed through the lens of it’s impact on what it means to be male, in so much that to be male inherently comes with an expectation of being warrior-like. While less frequently acknowledged or explored, being a female inherently requires women to also be warrior-like, though on their own terms.
