An interesting post on the role of women (particularly Helen of Troy and Pandora) as portrayed in Greek Mythology, followed by a story imagining what happens after Pandora opens the box which released evil upon the world.
►Greek Mythology: “Pandora and Helen of Troy, Misogynistic Stereotypes” /
“Collaboration with Carolee Croft”🍎:
“Pandora” by John William Waterhouse. 1896.
“With the curse, comes a blessing. Zeus wanted to punish humanity by creating you, the first woman, and by giving you that box filled with curses such as illness, war, and poverty. But if you look inside the box, one thing remains. It is hope”… (“After the Evil Spirits are Unleashed”. Carolee Croft).-
⇒♦ Introduction and Sketch of this post:
Greece is widely known as the birthplace of democracy, freedom of speech and thought, and egalitarian life. But in ancient Greece, women had no political or social rights.

This, in practice came along with prejudices against women, belittling of women, and their exclusion, and Misogyny in many ways.
