Amazons, Female Warriors, and Wonder Women

Include books with characters of the Amazon tradition, which could include Homer's Iliad and the Wonder Woman comic books. There are books from the 1970s inspired by the concept of the Amazon's women's community. There are also lots of science fiction books with strong and tall women warriors, which may not specifically reference the Amazon but one can see the influence. There are also legends and folklore from non-Greek societies of female shieldmaidens or warriors, such as the Valkyrie. See wikipedia article.

message 1: by Hazel (new)

Hazel Do the characters have to be Amazonian in stature? (physical stature, I mean) or just fighting chicks? I was thinking of Morgaine, but didn't remember the Patricia Briggs heroine.


message 2: by Antoine (new)

Antoine I'm kind of baffled by the Odyssey and the Iliad on this list, which contain no Amazon-ish characters. The Iliad, on the other hand, makes sense.
