In ancient Roman religion Juno is the sister and wife of Jupiter with whom she guards and rules women throughout the course of their lives.
Juno also presides over female warriors. She is the Roman counterpart to the Greek Hera.
In the contemporary world, Juno is the name for Canadian music awards, as ‘Oscar’ is to Hollywood film awards.
And she’s been the object of much scholarly discussion by mythographers, as evidenced in this excellent Wikipedia entry: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juno_%28mythology%29
