This essay is an excerpt from the book "Atlantic Essays." This digs deep into the realms of Greek Mythology and the true meanings of the Goddesses and how it should relate to the past and present hardships of American women. The author feels that there are great similarities once you see that the Goddesses have a lot more to them than what is usually portrayed.
