Black Panther is one of the highest grossing movies of all times. The film was released in February of this year and it has already surpassed a whopping $1.2B in global box office sales. One of the reasons for the incredible popularity of the movie is because of the portrayal of the female warriors of Wakanda, known as the Dora Milaje. The fans loved this incredible display of women empowerment and they left the theaters wanting more. Female warriors are not uncommon in African history, in fact the Dora Milaje was inspired by such warriors as the Dahomey women warriors and many others. In this video, Vivian Birchall of Africa 2 U gives us an amazing overview of African women warriors throughout history.
