The Heroine’s Journey

World renowned writer and mythologist, Joseph Campbell developed The Hero’s Journey. It consists of a series of steps that take the Hero of any given story from The Ordinary World to The New World, hitting important stages on the way.

Through the years, most of those heroes were brave, intelligent and capable… men. Since men dominated society, they also dominated storytelling, leaving women with a much smaller role to play.

The Hero’s Journey is slowly giving place to The Heroine’s Journey.
