Brings together the tales of thirteen inspirational female characters from ancient myths and legends.

Told afresh for a contemporary readership, Goddesses & Heroines brings alive stories from a variety of cultures with palpable energy. We meet the youthful Aphrodite; Hecate, the maths whizz; the heroic Mulan; Oshun, the Nigerian goddess whose foresight sparked a rebellion that freed slaves; and the not-so-fair-y godmother Baba Yaga, whose bone-crunching approach to life will be an inspiration to any power-hungry young thing. A celebrity-style profile for each goddess identifies her starring role, her supporting actors, what symbols to spot her by, celebrity sightings in other media and who she has been an inspiration to in contemporary life.

The endmatter includes information on how goddesses and heroines achieved their mythic status, how myths are passed on and evolve, and a map of goddesses from around the globe and how they are inter-connected.
