Consider one or two stories of women from Greek mythology and / or The Bible. Discuss how the story reveals and / or upholds the patriarchal society from which it derived, and how (or if) it challenges that patriarchy.
Patriarchy is a social system that supports male power and authority at the exclusion and/or suppression of female power and authority. It can also refer to any system (social, economic, political, religious) that views male authority as normative.
