A couple of years ago, military-related news feeds were full of stories about female Ranger School graduates, female infantry officers for both the Army and the Marine Corps, even a large number of female enlisted Marines headed for SOI (the terrestrial School of Infantry mind you; nothing to do with any Space Marine training).
It wasn’t too much later that we began hearing the all too predictable calls that females also be allowed to fight in the ranks of the Legiones Astartes (the Emperor‘s Space Marines).
Same as Hannah Duston, Bibi Dalair Kaur, Rose Kabuye, and Julia Bringloe.
The release of the Justice League feature film a few months ago, and its pending availability on DVD (should be here in March), has rekindled interest in the Amazons of Themyscira — at least inside House Morningwood’s walls. The story of how the various actresses, stunt-women, and fighters trained to portray the Amazons is a good one, as you can see in the video below (which was shot before the Wonder Woman movie, not Justice League, btw).
