Warriors, Witches, Women: An interview with Kate Hodges
Play • 28 min
Disobedient Femmes begins its the third season!
Suzanne LaGrande interviews writer and author Kate Hodges who has just published Warriors Witches, and Women: Mythology's Fiercest Females. Ms. Hodges discusses how both feminism and stories about monsters and ghosts helped inspire her book, which is a compendium of fascinating female figures from World mythologies. The book includes figures from mythology such as Cassandra as well as actual women who have become legends such as Yennenga, a warrior, princess, and mother who lived over 900 years ago in Burkina Faso. Other characters include
Bewitching, banished Circe, an introvert famed and feared for her transfigurative powers.
The righteous Furies, defiantly unrepentant about their dedication to justice.
Fun-loving Ame-no-Uzume makes quarreling friends laugh and terrifies monsters by flashing at them.
The fateful Morai sisters spin a complex web of birth, life, and death.
From feminist fairies to bloodsucking temptresses, half-human harpies and protective Vodou goddesses, Warriors, Witches and Women retells each heroine's story and raises important questions about how we may draw on these stories to understand the lives of women at present.
