Descrizione
A short history of the Women Soldiers of Dahomey, a group of incredible women highlighted in UNESCO's Women in African History series. Elite troops, The Women Soldiers of Dahomey, contributed to the military power of the Kingdom of Dahomey in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Admired in their country and feared by their adversaries, these formidable warriors never fled from danger. The troops were dissolved following the fall of Behanzin (Gbehanzin), the last King of Dahomey, during French colonial expansion at the end of the nineteenth century. The story of The Women Soldiers of Dahomey is told through comic strip illustrations by Pat Masioni a comic strip designer and scriptwriter originally from the province of Bandundu in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
