Without naming Joan of Arc, name a single woman in history who actually had a significant military impact in any war.

>During the war, the Oversteegen family hid a Jewish couple in their home. Freddie Oversteegen and her older sister Truus began handing out anti-Nazi pamphlets, which attracted the notice of Haarlem Council of Resistance commander Frans van der Wiel. With their mother's permission, the girls joined the Council of Resistance, which brought them into a coordinated effort. Freddie was fourteen years old at the time.>Oversteegen, her sister, and friend Hannie Schaft worked to sabotage the Nazi military presence in the Netherlands. They used dynamite to disable bridges and railroad tracks. Additionally, they aided Jewish children by smuggling them out of the country or helping them escape concentration camps.>The Oversteegens and Schaft also killed German soldiers, with Freddie being the first of the girls to kill a soldier by shooting him while riding her bicycle. They also lured soldiers to the woods under the pretense of a romantic overture and then killed them. Oversteegen would approach the soldiers in taverns and bars and ask them to "go for a stroll" in the forest.
>>12673355I guess you could argue Cleopatra had a "significant military impact", but her significant military impact was just getting her entire fucking nation destroyed and taken over by the Romans. So in other words, she had a positive military impact.
Boudica though her alliance ultimately was defeated. Also, it was likely the Romans exaggerated her part in the revolt and she may have been, like Joan of Arc, a symbolic woman to rally around rather than a warrior or commander herself (Joan of Arc did advise commanders but her advice was usually to attack fast while the enemy doesnt suspect it)
>>12673462Hmmm...> a kingdom belonging to one of King Alexander the Great's Generals handed down over several generations> a source of grain for the Roman ruler to dole food to the masses; an example of a socialist policy in the Classical Age
>>12673355Boudicca. She got her ass kicked but still

>>12673802You fucking idiot, societies have had redistribution schemes for thousands of years. Ancient Egypt itself had a command economy where the government provided farmers which seeds to plant, provided food and shelter, and set prices on goods. But only a fucking idiot with no knowledge of the Bronze Age would call this le socialism, because this shit was fucking common. It's called a palace economy. Your stupid fucking logic where you equate common economic policy done for thousands of years with socialism show you don't know shit about the world beyond two centuries ago.And for that matter, you don't understand socialism either; a palace economy only worked because the ruler LITERALLY owned the country. Socialism is an ideology, not any abstract economic policy. The ideology of palace economies, and in a different manner the ideology of the Roman state, were entirely different from socialism. Under a palace system, one person owns a country. Under the Roman system, people at the very bottom were given basic survival food to keep them from revolting. Neither of these are socialist ideologies. Just because a socialist country came to a similar solution for their problems as a civilization thousands of years ago doesn't make those civilizations socialist. Fucking kill yourself.

>>12674344She may have been an ineffectual and shockingly murderous barbarian, but she was definitely doing the fair share of the dirty work herself, and the revolt would not have happened as it did without her.

>>12673381>BoudicaWhat was the impact of a crushed rebellion?
>>12673355Catherine the Great
>>12673355Thats easy: Princess Pingyang.During the events that led to the Li Clan's revolt in the 600s, the Sui Dynasty ordered the arrest of the popular General Li Yuan (the future founder of the Tang Dynasty.) He would've been arrested & executed had it not for his daughter - Pingyang- who got wind of the warrant of arrest. She acted quickly: advised her dad and her husband to gtfo out of the Capital, and after doing so, she rode around Northern China egging on various militias & army units to rebel against the corrupt Sui Dynasty. Forming the famous "Army of the Lady" (which she personally commanded), she raised hell across Northern China and fought against the Sui Army, which gave enough time for her father to mobilize a big rebel army in Southern China and head up North. Her dad's army eventually linked up with Pingyang, gave her an official military rank (the first woman in Chinese history to hold a formal military rank) and together finally toppled the Sui Dynasty and founded the Tang Dynasty.Her achievements during the war made Pingyang quite a celebrity during the Tang Dynasty. Her father went contrary to the standards of Confucian Patriarchy and named her both Princess and honored her as "The First General of the Tang." As she wore military uniforms, she also jumpstarted a tomboy fashion trend in the Tang era of young women wearing men's clothing. When she finally died of illness her family again went against the patriarchal norms of her day when her brother- the Emperor Taizong of Tang- insisted on a state military funeral for her, the first ever held for a woman.

>>12673355The womens march that kicked off the Russian revolution had a chain of causality that led to Russia dropping out of the war, setting the stage for the second world war (Russia was likely to be quite punitive in negotiations, which would've made British ideas for a dignified peace for germany untenable), setting the stage for world war 2 and the cold war. If you want a more direct, single woman, Catherine the great kicked the shit out of the turks, poles, and swedes and lead Russia to new heights of power.

It was very, very easy to shoot down at exposed and vulnerable soldiers on the road from hiding spots high up in the rocks where you can sit and take potshots all day and they won't even know which goat track to take to come and get you. I don't know whether she did or didn't, but it wouldn't be at all hard to believe if she killed 300 or 500 or 1,000. Anybody could if they just tried.
