Background on our business name: Metis was Zeus' first wife. She was the Mother of wisdom. The gods prophesied that Metis & Zeus would conceive a child who would grow big & strong and who would eventually overthrow his father. Zeus became afraid of this unborn son. When Metis fell pregnant with their first child he tricked her into diminishing herself. He did not want to kill her outright as he still wished to draw from her wisdom. Once she had shrunk and diminished herself he swallowed her. The child that was born from their union was not the son that Zeus feared however, instead it was their daughter Athena, who was born from her father's crown. Athena effectively became the first woman born under the patriarchy. Metis (her mother) was in effect the last of the Whole Woman, wise, complete and free from suppression under the patriarchy. 'Metis Rising' is therefore a metaphor for women reclaiming their power and finding their voices again. Whilst this business is owned by two strong women who are inspired by the Metis myth, we do not however wish to exclude men from our target audience, neither are we fiercely feminist. We want our logo to demonstrate an equality. We hope to inspire others to reclaim their personal power and to strive for equality and balance in all things.
