Love this exploration and how you frame Athena's complicity and comfort with proximity to power as a different possible reading--so many layers to sort through and I loved reading this.

Thank you for reading Freya! Mythical characters are more complex than we fathom and exploring their depth is such a thrilling experience.

Mmmmm thank you for this powerful capturing the myths and legends. Loved it. I was particularly called to your exploration of Medusa and her being 'a formidable figure of resilience'. We all need to be formidable at times and I celebrate this in myself as I remember theses times. Much appreciation to you as always for your diligence. πŸ₯°

Thank you Ann, it is incredible that you feel connected to my work. Our mutual appreciation is strong and relentless, and it helps me to internalise the fact that women from every walk and generation should collaborate rather compete to thrive πŸŒΌπŸ’œ

Power intoxication takes hold equally in men and women. Ignorance, the root of all evil action, never ceases to horribly stun me in its seemingly endless manifestations. I will never give up the vision that women and men will honor one another as they are. Your articles are incredible, my friend!

You speak with honesty and nobel intention Renee. Your vision is a fine example of human goodness that persists beyond all layers. I align with your dream for an egalitarian world dear friend. Conviction like yours, makes this world a better place. Thank you for being a part of Berkana. πŸŒΌπŸ’œ
