Classic tales are full of stories about the wisest and strongest men. We here at The Apple Seed love stories about wise kings, powerful lumberjacks, all other kinds of larger than life male heroes. However, we also know that the world is full of wise and strong women and they too can make for interesting story protagonists. In today’s story, “Three Strong Women” by Heather Forest, we finally get to hear about some of them. These three women are wrestling masters, not only for their unmatched strength but for their unmatched wisdom as well, and the impact that these three women have on the world is so great that their effects can still be felt today.
