Goddess? Woman? Seductive? Demure? It was believed that women were either honorable or corrupt, and there was no manifestation of the two. Women were to be protected, to serve others and fulfill any other duties assigned to them.

Yet sagas tell of goddesses, seductive and strong. They fulfilled her duties with honor and dignity, strength and valor. Source comes from reality and imagination, a blending of the two. Thus, a woman was and is all things, a manifestation of goddess and mortal with all the strengths and weaknesses of each.
