In the first episode of International Women's Month, stories of the many women wronged by history and mythology. Jocasta, Medea, Medusa, Helen, Andromeda, Clytemnestra, and Penelope.

CW/TW: far too many Greek myths involve assault. Given it's fiction, and typically involves gods and/or monsters, I'm not as deferential as I would be were I referencing the real thing.

Past episodes on Medea, here, here, and here. On Medusa here, here, and here.
