It shows how these feminine myths are represented in Japan not only as beneficial or creative deities, but also as the archetypal strong or dominant woman that sometimes overshadows masculine figures and heroes, or as influential figures. Therefore, it analyzes this rich dialectic of the feminine and how the audiovisual culture had represented it thus far in film, TV series, and video games made in Japan.
