    This is nothing new. The patriarchal civilization (!) of the Western lore almost succeeded erasing thousands years of history of women warriors. It is time to re earth the past.
    I had a paternal grandmother for example. A landowner' s only daughter living in Eastern Turkey during early 20th century, she was known to wear pants, ride horses, shoot rifles, settle disputes and kick asses whenever the occasion required. Her name was Miriam. I think I inherited a thing or two from she rest in peace.
