What She Said: Living in Dystopia
Cassandra, Mepoho, the Oracle at Delphi, Himiko, Octavia Butler, Margaret Atwood…Throughout time and across all cultures women have held the role of prophet, oracle, seer, diviner. Their stories warned us where our society was heading. In exchange for their wisdom, they have been banned and burned, but also revered and channeled. She never stopped speaking and we never stopped listening. Sometimes it is a whisper and sometimes it is a shout. When she speaks to you, what does she say?
