What Was Left in the Box

We’ve heard the story of Epimetheus and Prometheus, and how Prometheus was punished by the gods for bringing the gift of fire to humanity. Well, in one version, that wasn’t enough for Zeus, who also sent one last punishment: Pandora. And she opened a container that had diseases and spiritual torments inside, and accidentally let them all out. But one thing was left at the bottom: hope. We need it, and we’ll read this fable through a feminist lens to help us hold onto hope in a time of trouble.
