Female Warriors in Feudal Japan

I never knew this class of warriors actually existed. I had always relegated stories of women warriors strictly to Hollywood.

Great find with that link - if it interests you you look a little deeper, you'll find women warriors in most cultures :)

We had a great discussion of it over here when the viking woman warrior was announced in Minifig Series 7.
