I’ve recently begin researching the goddess Athena, and came across this article:

There are several short pages that discuss the mythology of Athena punishing women- Arachne and Iodama, and of the death of Medusa and Pallas. Although the author never really states his central thesis within the text, the headline is to my mind inflammatory.

Granted, it’s from, (I found it through a link on another site) but I’d like to hear your thoughts on this subject.
