„The way our myths are commonly framed is merely a reflection of patriarchal demands and projections, often through the lens of male desire and misled craving for power. For a human being, having experienced the pain of physical or mental abuse, unjust punishment and subsequent alienation, the mirror remains empty …unless we find courage to stand tall against the toxic power of patronizing mechanisms which destroy the very fabric of our societies today. I hope to encourage the genuine rewriting of our life stories, for the sake of a more sustainable human mythology…“

Medusa once had charms; to gain her love
A rival crowd of envious lovers strove.
They, who have seen her, own, they ne’er did trace
More moving features in a sweeter face.
Yet above all, her length of hair, they own,
In golden ringlets wav’d, and graceful shone.
Her Neptune saw, and with such beauties fir’d,
Resolv’d to compass, what his soul desir’d.
In chaste Minerva’s fane, he, lustful, stay’d,
And seiz’d, and rifled the young, blushing maid.
The bashful Goddess turn’d her eyes away,
Nor durst such bold impurity survey;
But on the ravish’d virgin vengeance takes,
Her shining hair is chang’d to hissing snakes.
These in her Aegis Pallas joys to bear,
The hissing snakes her foes more sure ensnare,
Than they did lovers once, when shining hair.
(excerpt from Ovid‘s Metamorphosis)
