Let’s Hear it For the Ukrainian Women


Tired of being victims of gender oppression and sexual trafficking, some Ukrainian women are emerging as a new tribe, calling themselves the “Asgarda” and seeking to live completely autonomously from men. Currently a group of about 150 women of varying ages, they have revived the traditions of the Scythian Amazons of ancient Greek mythology, training in martial arts (including sword-play, boxing and the use of knives and battle-axes), life skills and sciences in order to become “ideal women.” These photos are all from French photographer Guillaume Herbaut who first met the Asgarda in 2004. Bad-ass.

Sign Our Petition!

The Slanch Report has started an online petition asking the MLB Network to air the Dock Ellis no-hitter he threw on June 12, 1970 against the San Diego Padres. The moment was a seminal piece of baseball history and is certainly worthy of being rerun.

Please join us in this cause and sign the petition below so we can all share in this special and fantastic moment of baseball history. THANKS!
SIGN THE PETITION HERE! AND PLEASE TELL YOUR FRIENDS AND PASS THIS ALONG!
