She also managed to wrack up 50,000 to 80,000 dead on her own side [against about 7,000 to 10,000 Romans] when she finally stopped looting and killing civilians [in addition to a nice little win against part of Legio IX ‘Hispania’] to try the Roman Army in a set piece battle; and caused the almost extirpation of her own Iceni and neighboring Trinovantes in the aftermath. Sounds like a successful feminist to me.

The History Channel or some such had a long show on her. Very interesting story. Lots of tactics, etc. The Romans did the same thing that the Spartans “The 400” did - fought in a narrow area so the hordes had no number advantage.
