The Bulletin Dozen is a monthly theme-based list of titles available only on-line. Since we're awfully fond of bakers here at the Bulletin, we thought we'd adopt their philosophy of generosity and throw in an extra one or two when we have them to offer--so don't expect an even dozen. Please feel free to copy, download, or link to these lists. We ask only that you cite the source. See the archive for lists from previous months.

Women Warriors
selected by Melanie Kimball

Women warriors are everywhere these days. Xena, Buffy, and assorted characters in the new movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, are at the forefront of popular culture. Here is a Bulletin dozen which includes fictional as well as historical women who made their mark in the world by wielding a sword, excelling in martial arts, and defending their homes, families, and country by means usually associated with men. Let the adventures begin!
