Brand Name Pandora

The success of this little site in the past few months has led me to go ahead and register a proper domain name for this site. So you can now see this marvelous site at:

http://www.defendingpandora.com

I'm also working on creating some sort of visual signature-- I was originally looking for an Ancient Greek image of Pandora, but I've also found some more modern images that I like. That, and there's always the temptation to borrow a photo of the one and only Louise Brooks, star of Pandora's Box.

Pandora as a myth, a woman, a stereotype, a legend, is steeped in meaning--mostly misogynistic and sexist. For me, Pandora isn't a force of evil, and she isn't a victim, she's a complex being; in other words, she's human. She stands in my mind for every woman, and in my words, I am defending her from the vitriol and prejudice that she bears.
