About

Lilith in Lilies is a blog discussing modern takes on morality, spirituality, philosophy, and pop culture. It focuses mainly on current equal rights topics, but occasionally meanders into the history, mythology, and political discourse behind an issue.

Hi, I’m Arielle Hessler, a passionate equal rights advocate, medieval historian, craft enthusiast, wanna-be artist, occasional photographer, and Star Wars fanatic. I started this blog as a way to express, form, and nurture my particular beliefs on feminism and equal rights in the hopes of one day pursuing an advanced degree in Women and Gender Studies. I want to talk about women and men’s portrayal in pop culture such as in comics, movies, magazines, music, television, and any other types of mass media mediums, and how this affects the way we view the people around us. I have strong opinions, and a desire to right all the wrongs in the world. Writing this blog is how I hope to start that journey.

    Wow, this blog sounds interesting and you found yourself a new follower. I’ve decided to come over here and comment here, rather than in the community pool at Daily Post. I love Lilith… Have you described her somewhere?

      Nope, not yet, but eventually I will! The mythology behind her is so complicated that I want to make sure I can speak with authority and not make mistakes before I write about her. But when I do, it’ll be to compare her to Eve, and the implications that comparison has had on how western culture views women 🙂 I’m so happy you’re interested and wanted to follow my blog! Thank you!

        You are very welcome. I learned about Lilith in comparison with Eve… She is a very important figure, I believe.
