(via Viking Shield Maidens Video – Vikings – history.com)

I want to be a viking woman: kickass and girly! But I have mixed feelings about the numbers. The hot warrior-to-shield maiden ratio is like 100:1. For Saturday nights in the thatched roof village pubs, it could be kind of awesome (provided the warriors remember to be proper gentlemen); but for everything else, the women seem a bit underrepresented.
