Publisher's Summary

In Jean Shinoda Bolen’s bestselling, game-changing Goddesses in Everywoman, myths came to life in a whole new way that resonated with our own lives. Even fictional character Bridget Jones was reading that book.

Now comes Artemis: The Indomitable Spirit in Everywoman, a groundbreaking new audiobook that explores the archetype of the activist. Indomitable means untamed, unsubdued. It is the one-in-herself quality in girls and women who will not be victims, no matter what. To bring the Artemis archetype to life, Dr. Bolen delves deeply into the myth of Atalanta, the famous hunter and runner in ancient Greek mythology, a mortal woman who is identified with Artemis the Greek Goddess of the Hunt and Moon. Atalanta began life abandoned and left to die because she was born a girl. She faced the Calydon Boar and drew first blood; she was the runner who would demand to be beaten in a footrace by the man who could claim her as his bride. Atalanta exemplifies the indomitable spirit in competent, courageous girls and in the women they become. This is grit, the passion and persistence to go the distance, to survive, and to succeed.

Dr. Bolen paints a vivid picture of Artemis women in current media, including Princess Merida from the animated film Brave and Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games. In all these examples and those of real-life women who grow into their Artemis spirit, she provides the means through which listeners can navigate their own personal exploration to become their authentic selves. Bolen dedicates this audiobook to women and girls who embody the archetype of Artemis, who discover her uncrushable spirit in themselves or others.

A "Must Listen To " for Girls & Women of All Ages

I learned more about the history and development of personalities of Greek Goddesses and their divine intervention and effecting of progress for girls and women, in this one book than in the last 5 I've recently studied. Would love if it were rewritten as a play or acted out in a similar audio. Thank you!
