Does the heroine's journey differ from the hero's journey?

The hero's journey is a metaphor for change, becoming whole, going home, letting go, overcoming limitations, finding who you are, growing up...and so on.

None of the above are gender dependent. All of the above are gender independent.

The heroine's journey is exactly the same as the hero's journey. To write a heroine's journey story, simply swap the gender roles.

In Erin Brockovich (2000), Erin played the hero and George played the love interest.

The Hero's Journey and Transformation through a New World/State is the template upon which the vast majority of successful stories and Hollywood blockbusters are based upon. Learn about this at
