Happy International Women’s Day!
We started the Badass Women in Japanese History series because we wanted to highlight the amazing lives and sheer badassery of historical Japanese women.
Take some time today to learn about and celebrate some of these lovely Japanese ladies!
- Tomoe Gozen: A warrior worth a thousand men
- Murasaki Shikibu: The world’s first novelist
- Queen Himiko: Loved by the people, the gods, but not historians
- Higuchi Ichiyō: Returned Japanese literature to its roots
