Question of the Day
Why do almost all books that have a tough/warrior female character always have a half naked woman holding a weapon on the cover? Really? She's a kick ass fighter/warrior, but she's got her midriff exposed or half of her chest is falling out of her shirt! Not very good for protection!
I'm not calling any one particular book out as it seems to be quite prevalent, but part of me is baffled by this trend. Can anyone explain this to me?
Edited to Add: I also am puzzled by the covers that show men in the same way. A warrior without armor? That guy is gonna die very quickly in battle!
