The Myth Project is me following the tug of something that has been bothering me about the stories we are told throughout our lives. The myths, fairy tales and modern fictions that subtly (and sometimes not subtly) teach us the rules of the patriarchy and abuse is normal, natural, true love.
This isn’t an academic study of any kind. My goal isn’t to tear down authors for continuing to write these harmful tropes or to ruin a much loved story. My goal is to explore these stories, see how the patriarchy has shaped them and maybe turn them into tools for what abuse can look like so we quite mistaking it for love.
My name is Delisa. I’m witch, artist and writer.
I believe in telling women’s stories in their own words and burning down the patriarchy.
