How to relish your warrior woman archetype
Are you a warrior woman?
Perhaps you’ve done our archetype quiz and uncovered a feisty midlife Boudica or Queen Elizabeth 1.
In the first century AD when Queen Boudica faced overwhelming odds after her husband was killed and her daughters raped, she decided to fight. She gathered her forces and beat the Romans in several battles.
Similarly, when Queen Elizabeth 1 of England faced a hostile parliament and religious forces bent on her destruction, she harnessed her exceptional intellectual powers and steadied an unruly country into the Golden Age
