Amazons is a type of denomination for women who are entirely equal to men, commonly found in ancient greek myths and sagas. Modern Amazons are women who create their own image of femininity and won’t be forced into stereotypical gender roles. In Berlin, the city of urban Amazons, they let us peek into their lives and their battles.
