The incredible women of the Amazons exist in myth and history, even if their myths tend to revolve around certain Greek heroes. Otrera, Hippolyta, Antiope, Penthesilea...

CW/TW: far too many Greek myths involve assault. Given it's fiction, and typically involves gods and/or monsters, I'm not as deferential as I would be were I referencing the real thing.

Sources: The Amazons by Adrienne Mayor; Homer's Iliad, translated by Caroline Alexander, another translated by Richard Lattimore; entries on Otrera, Penthesilea, and the Amazonian nymph Harmonia.
