--- Annis Pratt, Feminist Archetypal Theory
So if you've ever wondered why its impossible to escape the Madonna/whore dichotomy, look no further. Not to mention the bimbo, the whore with the heart of gold, the hag, the witch, the spinster, and the princess. When writers begin to interpret female archetypes according to female experience, worlds will collide, and one dimensional women will cease to exist. Real women not only have curves, but the capability of being sluts and mothers, grandmothers and whores, princesses and queens, all at the same time.
