In western mythology, women are made responsible for all the world’s woes. Unconscious adherence to this mythos has had a detrimental effect on the psychology of both men and women. In honor of Women’s History Month, Regie Gibson dives into the story of Pandora to see what modern spiritual and life lessons we can draw upon to pass on to our daughters and help better our world.
