Artemis: The Indomitable Spirit in Every Woman by Jean Shinoda Bolen explores the archetype of the activist - ancient and modern - and invites women and girls to discover the tenacity and courage of Artemis, and how it can be tapped to live authentically. Indomitable means untamed, unsubdued. It is the "Woman, Whole Unto Herself" quality in girls and women who will not be victims.

Jean Bolen delves deeply into the myth of Atalanta, the famous hunter and runner in ancient Greek mythology, a mortal woman who is identified with Artemis the Greek Goddess of the Hunt and Moon. Atalanta began life abandoned and left to die because she was born a girl. Artemis exemplifies the indomitable spirit of competent, courageous girls and the women they become. This is grit, the passion and persistence to go the distance, to survive, and to succeed.

Included are many real-life stories as well as mythological and fictional examples of Artemis archetype women, including Princess Merida from the animated film Brave and Katniss from The Hunger Games. Artemis and Atalanta are the means through which readers can navigate their own personal exploration to become their authentic selves. Hardback. ISBN 9781573245913.
