George Miller, Mad Max, and the Civilizing Influence of Women

In my discussions on the Mad Max franchise, (see the GeekingOutAboutIt Blog), I talked about the use of the Triple Goddess Myths from Pagan folklore, in the movie’s narratives. I want to tie the Triple Goddess mythology to the idea of women as the keepers/holders of human civilization, which is a message that has been seeded throughout George Miller’s Mad Max franchise.
