Historical Women of War [Infographic]

Women have always played a pivotal role in society. From child birth to rearing women have proven to be the link that brings everything together. In the same fashion, women have significantly influenced the armed forces. Throughout history the supposed “weaker sex” has displayed strong mental and physical abilities. During ancient wartimes men were on the frontline while women were at home. Although not viewed as significant at the time, ancient women’s work at home greatly contributed to the success or failure of a country at war. Whereas women who cared for children allowed their husbands to concentrate and win fights, women who did not tend to home duties served as distractions and sometimes caused nations to lose wars. As time progressed and more rights were granted, women became the face of frontlines in war and even served as authoritative figures in battle. Sergeant Major Mildred C. Kelly is one of several females to make warrior history in 1974 when she was appointed over hundreds of well-qualified men to be Command Sergeant Major. Today there are no limits to what women can do and war is no exception. From Majors to Generals, women have conquered every role except the Commander-In-Chief position. When it comes to war women truly show off their girl power.
