Many cultures have Goddesses of War, despite the fact that women were either banned from fighting or it was culturally unusual for them to do so. In Greek culture, we have fighting Goddesses or at least ones who use weapons, including Athena, Goddess of Wisdom and Artemis, Goddess of the Hunt. We have the myth of the Amazons, the tribe of female warriors who have been so celebrated in culture. We also have Nike, Goddess of victory. A lesser known Goddess, however, is Enyo (Bellona in Roman culture).
