woman warrior

A woman warrior is a role of interest to historians and scholars of anthropology and feminism.

The portrayal of women in literature and popular culture as warriors has been studied in literary, film, feminist and cultural studies. In fictional works, the character type often refers to a strong female personality, determined in pursuit of her goals and often eager to take on typical "man's work" like fighting wars or performing manual labour to accomplish those goals. This type of character has become a stock character, and stands in contrast to the "damsel in distress" archetype . When of a royal background, a woman warrior may be called a warrior princess.
