Introduction to Under Athena's Wing
I have recently started working at the Women's Center at my school and have come to the realization that Women's and Gender issues are my passion. Though I will continue to post on my personal blog, I began this blog as a place to collect my feminist related writings. Though Greek mythology is not known for being incredibly feminist, I believe Athena could act as a great role model for many women. Not only is she my favorite goddess, she is representative of wisdom, courage, strength, and skill; all traits we must embody in order to make the change we want. Growing up in Athens, Georgia, I was constantly seeing Athena in the form of a statue placed in the middle of our downtown. I have always found this depiction of her regal and worth looking up to. As I am still new to the feminist world, I titled this blog Under Athena's Wing to represent the position I believe I am in. I have found something that I love so much and though I am no expert on the subject I am so ready and willing to learn and be able to put these lessons back into this world.
