AMAZONS is an artist’s book that celebrates women’s power by imagining the lives of legendary warrior women. In a world where violence against women is rampant and misogynist ideologies govern, I found solace in Adrienne Mayor’s The Amazons: Lives & Legends of Warrior Women Across the Ancient World. The written and visual material in the book was inspired by and derived from Adrienne’s dedicated research. The warrior queen's legacy of riding horses, practicing archery, and fighting valiantly opens our minds to a future built on respect and equality.
