[[picture:"Odyssey vol7 n6 Patty.jpg" ID:7046]]

Here Bouras defines the difference between her pethera, a rural Greek woman, and herself, an urban Australian, "theoretician".
In the process she uncovers some of the socio-psychology of numerous Kytherian women; with whom, we, of the second generation ...
