After wacthing the video, I can see the tragedy of her, which reminds me of the state of women in Ancient Greece. As we can see, Medusa didn't do anything wrong, she just served Athéna as loyally as she can, but Poséidon raped her and she didn't have the ability to resist. In the video, it is said that Poséidon had his own reason and his evil deed should not be blamed at that time. But why? I don't know what makes him do that as a cost of a woman's chasity and her life, not mentioning this woman served Athéna. When we were in senior high, we learned that women's state is just a little better than slaves. They have much fewer rights than men do. Medusa's tragedy is a result and reflection of the gender inequality at that time.
