Xena and Her Sisters

17 November 2003 – Ex-Warrior Princess, Lucy Lawless, was the obvious choice to front a Discovery Channel documentary series on women fighters in history. Warrior Woman features Joan of Arc, China’s Wang Cong’er (the inspiration behind Disney flick, Mulan), Boudica of Britain, Irish pirate Grace O’Malley, and Apache warrior, Lozan. “These women have been written out of history, largely,” says Lawless, who shows off her own impressive sword skills in a duel with an Irish weapons master. Toronto Star: “… who better to present these unsung heroines than the woman who became an international icon as their fictional sword-swinging sister, Xena?”
