The Virgin.

When reading [the Artemis] myth, one should not be deluded into any coy notions of chastity or virginity. The concept of a 'virgin' goddess goes back to a time when female deities had far greater autonomy and power than under the later, more patriarchal order; they were 'virgins' because they existed and created quite independently of any male principle.

Proud to be a virgin =)
