For a long time, the role of a woman in war was reduced either to the fate of the victim, or to the compassionate guardian of the wounded and destitute. Leadership in all war-related processes was considered the prerogative of men. However, rapid changes in the world at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries caused a shift in the issue of female leadership. Along with access to education, expansion of political rights, better employ-ment opportunities, women are changing their situation even in war. Ukrainian journalism introduces readers to brave members of the Legion of Ukrainian Sich Riflemen. Their bi-ographies now motivate women who serve or support the Armed Forces of Ukraine, or are actively involved in volunteering. Also, thanks to journalism, the names of women whose heroic actions were aimed at fighting the Nazis and saving the civilian population during the Second World War became known to the general public. It is important that journalists, writers and commentators pay attention to a gender approach in the study of women’s lead-ership, both in the past and in the context of the ongoing Russian-Ukrainian war. Thanks to the author’s publications of servicemen and volunteers, journalists and activists, our ideas about women’s leadership in conditions of war are significantly expanded
