      Today we take a look at a tribe of fierce warrior women that the ancient Greeks referred to as the Amazons. Intro Begins Skip Intro .   The book titled The Daughter from a Wishing Tree: Usual Tales About Women in Mythology is part of a long-running mythology series by Murthy .

    Women, for the most part, played minor roles. With Women of Mythology by Kay Retzlaff, we see, at last, ancient myth from a feminine perspective women as doers. From the no-nonsense ferocity of the Amazon queen, Myrine, who captured Atlantis, to the exploits of Chinese General Mulan, women arise from myth in much the same way as their male. The ancient Romans had a rich mythology and, while much of it was derived from their neighbors and predecessors, the Greeks, it still defined the rich history of the Roman people as they eventually grew into an writers such as Ovid and Virgil documented and extended the mythological heritage of the ancient Mediterranean to gives us such long-lasting and iconic figures as Aeneas.

    VI The Encyclopedia of Celtic Mythology and Folklore Celtic women helped their men in battle? Was this an observed fact, or a way of showing the Celts to be more barbaric than the Romans, who left their wives at home when they invaded. (For a full discussion of this point, see my book The Viking Spirit: An Introduction to Norse Mythology and Religion.) Men and women were both judged based on how well they performed their expected societal roles. For men, this meant being a manly, honorable warrior and/or farmer. For women, this meant excelling at her housekeeping duties.

BOOK REVIEW - ⭐⭐⭐ Warriors, Witches, Women: Mythology's Fiercest Females by Kate Hodges This book is a guide to mythical women and female creatures across history and across the globe.
