I previously posted this questionnaire and requested a response within 2 days.
Responses are still appreciated! My intent is to develop a "Heroine Cycle",
which would be the counterpart to Joseph Campbell's "Hero Cycle". The
questions were originally written to get a woman's point of view, but I later
realized that it would be interesting to find out what men thought would
elevate a woman to heroine status. Gentlemen your participation is welcomed,
however, I'd like for you to interview a woman in developing your theory.
When I have a significant number of responses, and the information has been
compiled, I will release the information back to the net with credit to those
1). What roles do men play in the development of a heroine. These roles
may be negative or positive.
2). What obstacles would a woman have to overcome to achieve heroine
status that a man would not have to overcome to achieve hero status.
3). Listed below are attributes, negative or positive that may be encountered
by a woman on her climb to heroism. Please state your feelings regarding
these attributes, and add any you feel were omitted.
* Loss of freedom
* Choice of Path
* Must Overachieve
* Bound by Tradition
* Worth is defined by a male
4). In Greek mythology, Sisyphus is condemned eternally to repeat the cycle
of rolling a heavy rock up a hill in Hades only to have it roll down
again as it nears the top. Tell how this scenario might relate to
you, or other women you know.
**** ANY CONTRIBUTIONS YOU HAVE REGARDING THE CREATION OF THE HEROINE
CYCLE THEORY WOULD BE APPRECIATED. ****
