Thanks for this! What is more interesting about Zeus (and I love Greek mythology for its imagination) is that he took all shapes as rain or a bull to seduce/rape princesses…and Hera his wife was the crazy-jealous woman…

However, these same Greeks created/believed the Goddess of wisdom…that one that was born directly from Zeus' head.

Reading The Republic of Plato where women and men should have the same education and protect the City altogether, we only can realize that as much as the ancient Greeks that have chosen that easier path towards the patriarchy, as most of the men and women do today.
