Nalyze the Placement of female characters in The Odyssey”

Please read the The Odyssey”, Homer.
The textbook we use is The Norton Anthology of World Literature, 3rd Edition by Martin Puchner, ISBN:970-0-393-91329-3
Topic: In keeping with the epic tradition, The Odysseyfocuses on male heroes who perform exalted war related deeds. Analyze the Placement of female characters in relation to this formulaic emphasis. I think I need more than two female characters to be discussed in the essay.
