Lauren DeLisa Coleman '86 explores need for modern-day "Greek Heroes" among women

In the Huffington Post, Lauren DeLisa Coleman '86 writes, "As the recent Barnard College-sponsored opening of the "Greek Heroes" exhibit New York City's Onassis Cultural Center took place, it seems an appropriate time to ponder such questions, particularly since the exhibit examines the importance which mankind has traditionally placed on heroes as role models. Surely across what was considered that era's media: Athena, honored as a goddess based on her warrior skills and depth of wisdom; was celebrated. A cool role model for young female Greeks of the time. But is it quite possible that there is a need for the unearthing of more such Athenian types today -- young and hip in business to assist with our age's latest female movement? And could there be a huge opportunity in getting in on the ground floor of filling such a need, if in it fact exists?"
