The story of women in antiquity should be told now, not only because it is a legitimate aspect of social history, but because the past illuminates contemporary problems in relationships between men and women. ... It is most significant to note the consistency with which some attitudes toward women and the roles women play in Western society have endured through the centuries.
Sarah B. Pomeroy, Goddesses, Whores, Wives and Slaves: Women in Classical Antiquity

Clarissa Pinkola Estés
We elicit the Wildish Self through specific questions and through examining tales, legends, and mythos. Most times we are able, over time, to find the guiding myth or fairy tale that contains all the instruction a woman needs for her current psychic development. These stories comprise a woman's soul drama.
