Show synopsis Explore powerful female archetypes, from Athena to Xena, in history and in myth to discover how they can help today's woman. More than a comprehensive survey of women warriors, this is the only book to provide an original, systematic, and practical way of interpreting the vast literature about strong females in conflict. It presents illuminating ideas for applying this knowledge to real life situations and to help women reach their full potential as they apply ancient wisdom to modern problems. They'll discover how strong females--such as Guinevere, Wonder Woman, Florence Nightingale, Amelia Earhart, and Gloria Steinem--have viewed themselves through the ages. Then, they'll use the lessons they've learned to handle conflicts at home and in the workplace. Plus, there's a revealing do-it-yourself questionnaire that measures warrior traits! This is a truly groundbreaking work that every woman must have.
