the samurai woman, also known as onna bugeisha, although a small but very important role for the representation of upper-class Japanese bushi [samurai] and some of them [eg, Empress Jingu, Nakano Takeko, Hojo Masako or Tomoe Gozen] have an impact major in Japanese history.

Tomoe Gozen provides one of the few examples of a true woman warrior in early to early modern Japanese history.
Tomoe Gozen Onna Bugeisha, or female samurai Tomoe Gozen (巴 御前?) (1157?–1247), pronounced [tomo.e], was a late twelfth-century female samurai warrior (onna bugeisha), known for her bravery and strength. She is believed to have fought in and survived the Genpei War (1180–1185).
Tomoe Gozen - Japan - 1180 CE: Gozen was a rare female samurai warrior. From Japanese folklore: "Tomoe was especially beautiful, with white skin, long hair, and charming features. She was also a remarkably strong archer, and as a swordswoman she was a warrior worth a thousand, ready to confront a demon or a god, mounted or on foot. She handled unbroken horses with superb skill; she rode unscathed down perilous descents..." #womens #history #medieval era #military #asian women

Hind al-Hunnud was the ‘Battle Queen’ of the Quarish tribe of the kingdom of Kindah. In Arabic culture women played an important role in battle, some of the earliest roots of Arabic culture lay in the cult of the ‘battle queen’ and of tribal warfare. The battle queen mounted upon a camel led the armies into battle as commander in chief or field general. She fought Mohammad in the Battle of Badr in 724, and accounts describe her as ‘brandishing a broadsword with great gusto’.

Juana Galán was known for beating Napoleon’s troops out of her village during the Battle of Valdepeñas in June, 1808. There weren’t enough men to defend the village from invading French. Juana, 21, immediately rallied all of the women in the village. When the French troops marched in, the women dumped boiling oil on top of them. Juana stood in the street with a large club and beat seven shades of shit out of any French soldier that crossed her path. The French never returned.
