In the time of Muhammad and the Four Caliphs were there any women warriors? I know about Aisha and the Battle of the Camel but were there any actual Muslim women who fought in battle?

A search reveiled Khawlah bint al-Azwar, Nusaybah bint Ka'b Al Maziniyyah and Asma bint Abi Bakr as women warriors at that time.

Hind bint Utbah was a fierce opponent of Muhammad, fought against him, but later became a Muslim and fought and distinguished herself at the Battle at the Yarmouk amongst the Muslim armies. She is the mother of Muawiyah.

The wives and daughters of Muhammad are supposed to be an example for Muslim women as Muhammad is a supposed to be the role for Muslim men. So why can't Saudi women drive cars for their daily bussiness when Aisha rode a camel in war, a civil war to boot?!

Aisha was also a scholar and is quoted several times concerning the interpretation of the Qur'an, including (to my interest) on some grammatical points.
