“To provide opportunities for women to experience the adventures life has to offer.”
The story of the Amazon Woman became legendary as Greek history passed into Mythology.
As the Greeks moved across the Asian Continent, they encountered a matriarchal society of Warrior Women. These women were strong willed and did not subscribe to the tenets of defense as a mans job. They were self sufficient, courageous and commanded equal respect from the men. The Greeks having never met women with such strength of character and being, were naturally intrigued by the multiple tribes of Women living as warriors. According to legends, a tribe of Amazon Woman fought for Troy in the Trojan War.
Many stories abound regarding how the Amazons lived, the most famous falsehood being that they cut off one breast in order to shoot their arrows as a man. However, history has shown that the true Amazons that birthed the legends were not women who despised men nor wished to be men. They were women who enjoyed being women. They did not see themselves as less than a man as Greek society expected. Instead they fought for their beliefs, stood up to adversity, demanded equality, raised families, made laws, defended their homes and sought adventure activities.
In keeping on the true Amazon path, the Amazon Nation provides opportunities for women to enjoy what adventure life has to offer. The activities that are organized are not average “Girl Day” events. They have included Fishing, Hiking, Camping, Deep Sea Fishing, Spelunking, ATV and Motorcycle rides and Weapons Fire to name a few.
These events are organized by women, for women. No men are allowed. From, stay at home moms and teachers to doctors and scientists; from Europe, North America and Asia, women of all ages, all walks of life and all cultures have attended these events. The bond of “Sisterfriend” that is created is something that can not be described but must be experienced.
The Amazon Nation welcomes you to join us. For more information on Past, Current and Future Amazon events, check the Amazon Events page. And remember it’s all about “Living the Amazon Within.”
