Traditional women.

Have you heard of the 13th century princess who defied marriage conventions by insisting suitors beat her in a wrestling match first? How about the woman with a prosthetic leg who was one of the most feared spies operating in Nazi Germany during WW2? Or the freed US slave who became a real estate magnate?

At Traditional Women, you’ll learn about these and more fascinating real-life women. Some you may have heard of; many you likely won’t have, for their achievements have been overlooked, undervalued, or sometimes even outright erased from history.

The women you’ll find in Traditional Women are diverse in ethnicity, era, and experience. Some are awe-inspiring, some terror-stoking, some world-changing. But most of all, they show that what we think of as ‘traditional’ feminine roles and values might not be as steeped in history and tradition as we think.
