What purpose would there be in this? In Indo-European thought,
women are the sources of power, not the wielders. Therefore, they are
*supposed* to give their power to those around them.<
I was thinking of some od the more active women, such as Queen Mebdh and the
warrior Aoife who used the power themselves,
Also, as to being trapped into breaking geasa, CuChulainn was put into the
double bind of not refusing food and not eating hound. Either way he had to
violate a geas.
