“You couldn’t kill me if you tried for a 100 years.” ~ Lagertha, played by Katheryn Winnick, Vikings ~ ⚔️ ❤️ ⚔️
Today, in honor of International Women’s Day, I have joined Glamourina Nation to celebrate and honor the strength of women… Who are now and always have been, capable of ANYTHING!!!! We are strong! We are beautiful! And we can be and do EVERYTHING we set out to accomplish! ⚔️⚔️
I have recreated a look in homage to Lagertha, a great Viking shield maiden. History claims she lived, fought, and ruled parts of Norway in the 12th century. She was said to have fought “as bravely as a man with locks flying down her back.” Not only was she an established warrior, in a time when women weren’t usually known for this distinction, she ruled her own territory without the aid of a husband. Something else not common in the 12th century… Is this just a legend? Were her deeds real? We can only rely on what is written of her, but I would certainly like to believe so!
Celebrate women everyday! Not just today! Ladies, uplift and empower one another! ❤️Happy International Women’s ⚔️❤️⚔️
