The Amazons
In Greek mythology, the Amazons were an all-female race of warriors who lived in Scythian lands near the eastern shores of the Black Sea.  They are first mentioned in The Iliad, c.750 BC.   While no free males were allowed in Amazon territory, the Amazons would become impregnated either from visits to neighboring tribes or from relations with their male slaves.  The male offspring that resulted from these unions were killed.  The dedication of the Amazon warriors was demonstrated in their cutting off or cauterizing of the right breast, in order to remove that impediment to effective archery.
The origin of this legend is uncertain, but may lie in the practice of defending towns with a trained female home guard while the men were away on military campaign.  If the campaign went poorly for the men, there was your town of female warriors sans men.
