Women Warriors: An Unexpected History
Air Date/Time February 28, 3:00 PM (Central)
1st ed., hardcover, 240 pages, Beacon Press
The woman warrior is always cast as an anomaly–Joan of Arc, not GI Jane. But women, it turns out, have always gone to war. In this fascinating and lively world history, Pamela Toler not only introduces us to women who took up arms, she also shows why they did it and what happened when they stepped out of their traditional female roles to take on other identities.
