The Virgin of Guadalupe, the patron saint of Mexico, derives from an Aztec goddess, while the European folklore figure, Cinderella, derives via Egypt, from China. From classical Greek heroines to female archetypes in today's video games, from Native American divinities to Asian goddesses immortalized through landscape references, goddesses and their stories inform our history and fill our folklore.About the Author:
