Amazon feminism is dedicated to the image of the female hero in fiction and in fact, as expressed in the physiques and feats of female athletes, martial artists and other powerfully-built women in society, art and literature. Camille Paglia's interpretation of the "Uranian Aphrodite" is a good example of Amazon feminism.

Amazon feminism is considered to have formed during the 1990s via the writings of Camille Paglia. Historical criticism may hope to uncover more examples of Amazon feminism in the pre-90s literature. An obvious example of this is Wonder Woman, who was conceived in the early 1940s and based partially on the Amazons in Greek Mythology.

The origin of the term "Amazon feminism" can be traced to several sources, including Thomas Gramstad. The name itself makes reference to the Amazons, a nation of warrior women from Greek mythology.
