Jean Shinoda Bolen, Artemis: The Indomitable Spirit in Everywoman

Jean Shinoda Bolen, Artemis: The Indomitable Spirit in Everywoman

Maryanne Comaroto interviews Jean Shinoda Bolen on Artemis: The Indomitable Spirit in Everywoman

Feeling indomitable, untamed, unsubdued? Or maybe not so much? Jean Bolen explores the myth of Atalanta, the famous hunter and runner in ancient Greek mythology, a mortal woman who is identified with Artemis, Goddess of the Hunt and Moon. Atalanta began life abandoned and left to die because she was born a girl. She went on to conquer fierce animals and make a man prove himself before she would be his bride. She exemplifies the indomitable spirit in competent, courageous girls and in the women they become who will not be victims, no matter what. Looking at today’s girls with grit like Princess Merida from the film Brave and Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games, Jean gives us ways we can explore and find our own uncrushable spirits.
