Max Dashu -- Who Were The Amazons?

In a wonderful, spirited discussion, Max Dashu discusses her recent research into the warrior women called "Amazons." How did the Ancient Greek conception of femaleness shape the stories of Amazons that we know today? What is the relationship of Amazon concept to the warrior tribes that existed in the Black Sea region? Was there really a standalone tribe of warrior women? Co-hosts Sean Marlon Newcombe and Dawn "Sam" Alden discuss these concepts with Max.
