The Feminine and Masculine Journeys

Sharper Stories

The Hero’s Journey is the most well known of the “journey” story structures. But there are two other, lesser known ones: the Feminine Journey and the Masculine Journey. Before I go further, know that although the names of these structures refer to gender, they have little to do with the actual gender of the character involved. These plot archetypes are actually based on the stories of two Sumerian gods: Inanna (feminine) and Gilgamesh (masculine).

These journeys are character driven. They are both centered around the character going through some type of major internal growth. The main difference being that in the Masculine Journey, the character is supported in his quest. In the Feminine Journey, the character is not supported.
