August 15, 2016 6:33 PM

From Fu Hao to Joan of Arc to Rear Adm. Grace Hopper and beyond, women have played decisive roles in military affairs since the dawn of history.

Ahead of The Athena Conference: Heroines of the Past, Present and Future at the U.S. Naval Academy’s Alumni Hall, USNI News is asking our readers over the next week who was the greatest woman in military history? 

The conference, hosted by the U.S. Naval Institute and the U.S. Naval Academy, with support from The William M. Wood Foundation, will be held at U.S. Naval Academy’s Alumni Hall on Sept. 8th and 9th.
