This audiobook provides a new take--and a more feminist perspective--on the women in Greek mythology and the misogyny often associated with the stories. Author Natalie Haynes, who also shines as narrator, is conversational, sarcastic, and surprisingly entertaining as she shares the stories of 10 women who have long been vilified by historians and writers alike. Haynes asks thought-provoking questions about why the unfavorable portrayals of these women were so widely accepted in the past and continue to be even today. All of the stories are well researched and intelligently presented by Haynes. The sections on Pandora, Medusa, and Medea are particularly engaging.
