* [[http://www.helpthechildbrides.com/stories/florajessop.htm Flora Jessop]] was born and raised in the polygamist FLDS cult. When faced with an arranged marriage and after years of horrific abuse, she escaped from the cult and is now an advocate for women and children trying to escape as well. [[CrazyAwesome She is ]] BadAss. She's a good marksman and always carries a gun (or two) to fend off the many cultist enemies she has made and [[MamaBear to protect the innocent women and children]] she saves from the desert compounds. She risks her life on a regular basis to save these kids and put their abusers behind bars. Also, she has a [[HellbentForLeather very nice leather]] [[ImpossiblyCoolClothes jacket]]. And she's beautiful to boot!

* Though the Mongols have a history of [[LadyofWar badass lady empresses]], [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandukhai_Khatun Mandukhai Khatun]] is perhaps best known. Freshly widowed, she had the choice of marrying her well-beloved general or a rival Muslim warlord, and [[TakeAThirdOption chose to rule in her own right]] until her adopted heir came of age and she [[WifeHusbandry married him]]. In that time, she reunited her people, reconquered chunks of their lost territory, and fought off both encroaching tribes and the Ming. She frequently went into battle with her men, most notably on one occasion while [[PregnantBadass pregnant with twins]].

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milunka_Savi%C4%87 Milunka Savić]], who takes this trope UpToEleven by, according to various sources, being the most decorated female soldier ''of all time''. She fought in the Balkan Wars and World War 1 for Serbia, initially enlisting by [[SweetPollyOliver disguising herself as a man]]. Key word being ''initially''. When her gender was eventually discovered after being wounded, she was allowed to continue fighting in the infantry openly as a woman because ''she was too {{Badass}} to waste'' as a non-combatant. If you doubt that, you can just ask the '''twenty-three''' Bulgarian soldiers she single-handedly captured during the Battle of the Crna Bend. She was wounded no less than nine times before retiring from service.

* Ukrainian Army pilot [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nadiya_Savchenko Nadiya Savchenko]] was fighting in the War in Donbass against Russian forces when she was captured by pro-Russian separatists in 2014, and put on trial in Russia for murder.[[note]]Although Savchenko is qualified to fly both the Su-24 bomber and the Mil-24 helicopter -- in fact, she's the first woman in the Ukrainian military to be admitted to aviator training -- she was serving as part of the Ukrainian ground forces when she was captured. The Russians alleged that she directed mortar fire in such a way that it killed two TV journalists. The journalists were undoubtedly killed during a mortar attack, but unfortunately for the Russian case, mobile phone data suggests that Savchenko was captured an hour before the attack actually took place.[[/note]] She was found guilty in March 2016, and sentenced to 22 years in prison. While she was in detention, she repeatedly protested the legality of her arrest, refused to admit guilt or even recognise the court, and went on hunger strike to prove that she meant what she said. She was repeatedly interrogated and placed in solitary confinement, and in response she wore a t-shirt in the courtroom with the Ukrainian state symbol on it; spoke only Ukrainian, not Russian; swore at the judges in open court, called them "fascists" and ''[[FlippingTheBird gave them]] [[http://ichef-1.bbci.co.uk/news/624/cpsprodpb/1CDB/production/_88878370_88877324.jpg the finger]]''. Oh yeah, and in her final statement to the court, she called Vladimir Putin a "petty tyrant". All this made her a national hero in Ukraine, to the point where she even got elected in absentia to the Ukrainian parliament; needless to say, it made her ''wildly'' unpopular in Russia. In May 2016 the Russians released her anyway as part of a prisoner swap, as if to say "Jesus, fine, have her ''back'' already."
