16. Heroes' journeys are tremendously wise. Different for women than men.

One of the best things about fairy tales is they depict women’s versions of the “hero’s journey” as well as the men’s. (And I don’t mean those of either gender can’t undertake them, just that there’s more than one way to journey and they are depicted in gender based ways).

“Women” leave the restrictive ordinary, journey in a similar way, but go inward and transform rather than outward and conquer. The things brought back nurture and create growth.

This we need.
