Feminine Archetypes - Amazon

Sunday, August 14, 2011

To me the Amazon and the Warrior are nearly one in the same.  In Ireland women fought alongside their husbands when they owned land.  They were fierce in their love for their home and their families.  The Amazons were willing to fight for what they wanted.  They strove to become the ultimate warriors and believed they didn’t need a man at their sides to be successful in battle.

The modern day Warrior is sometimes seen as a Bitch for being strong-willed and going after what she truly believes is the right thing to do.  My own daughter has been called a Bitch by people for having this strong-willed attitude.  She knows what she wants and is determined to get it, but at the same time shows respect for her beliefs and is comfortable in whom she is.

Today not many women feel the need to physically battle someone but that doesn’t make a modern day woman less of a warrior.  We have our own battles to fight on a daily basis.  Whether it’s dealing with a chauvinist or someone thinks we lack brains or stamina.  We teach our daughters that they should strive to be whatever they want to be in this modern time.  So when it comes to showing our daughters they can be strong-willed and wise this is the one thing a warrior truly is.
