Something beautifully ceremonial about this design.
In the Ukraine, a country where females are victims of sexual trafficking and gender oppression, a new tribe of empowered women is emerging. Calling themselves the “Asgarda”, the women seek complete autonomy from men. Residing in the Carpathian Mountains, the tribe is comprised of 150 women of varying ages, primarily students, led by 30 year-old Katerina Tarnouska. Reviving the tribal traditions of the Scythian Amazons of ancient Greek mythology, the Asgarda train in martial arts, taught by former Soviet karate master, Volodymyr Stepanovytch, and learn life skills and sciences in order to become ideal women. Little physical documentation existed on the tribe, until recently, when renowned French photographer, Guillaume Herbaut, met the Asgarda back in 2004 in the midst of the Orange Revolution.

WOMEN OF HISTORY | TRIEU THI TRINH (225–248) (Kathy Uyen)
Triệu Thị Trinh was a Vietnamese warrior who managed for some time to successfully resist the Kingdom of Wu during their occupation of Vietnam. She is quoted as saying ‘I’d like to ride storms, kill sharks in the open sea, drive out the aggressors, reconquer the country, undo the ties of serfdom, and never bend my back to be the concubine of whatever man.’
In Vietnam she remains a celebrated heroine and many streets are named after her in the main cities.
