In Ovid’s Metamorphoses Medusa began life as a beautiful woman. She was then raped in Athena’s temple and as a punishment she was transformed into a terrifying gorgon, who was then beheaded by Perseus.
She has been a potent symbol for female power for a long time and her myth is one of my favourites. Most people dont know the origins of her myth but she was actually a victim who was portrayed as a monster.
