ABSTRACT
There seems to be a commonly held view that revenge is at best unsatisfying, at worst unseemly. Anyone who followed the Vicky Pryce trial in the newspapers is likely to have noticed that revenge is not generally held up as an exemplary motivation for doing something, especially if you are a woman. While men might hope to exact revenge under a Gladiator-like banner of natural justice, the benchmark for feminine revenge is Medea, Greek mythology's version of a bunny-boiler - a volatile witch who gets it all totally out of proportion, killing her own children after her husband Jason (of Argonaut fame) leaves her for someone else.
