Women Warriors

Women have always ventured in fields that were male-dominated including military combat. Many Lebanese women “Muslims and Christians” have an experience as women fighters.
These women manage to carry weapons and fight side by side with other men fighters and succeed in achieving their military and political missions.
What do these women accomplish on a feminine level? And did carrying weapons made them loose their primary roles as women and mothers?
