The #MeToo movement of empowerment that exploded in the US during 2017, has lately made its way to Greece and Cyprus shedding light on the far-reaching impact of sexual abuse and the emotional and physical trauma that follows.

However, forced sexual initiation and coercion is not something unprecedented. The current rape and harassment narratives and the accompanying negative perceptions of rape victims have long-standing historical roots. More specifically, these issues were also a very prominent theme in Greek mythology, where sexual violence against women and young men is rather complicated by the multiple forms it takes and the contexts in which it occurs.

The exhibition aims through Greek Mythology tales to offer a benign explanation for the prevalence of these aggrieved female figures, the dynamic of gender power differentials and the perpetuation of these stereotypes.
