In the foreword to my copy of Euripides' Medea, the Greek tragedy, and there again in Wikipedia, the play is referred to as proto-feminist. For the unfamiliar, Medea is about a woman who married Jason (of the Argonauts), but decides to exact revenge on him for his infidelity, by killing his new bride. Actually, that's not entirely accurate, she has her and Jason's children do it. They also wind up killing the bride's father. And what does their mom do to reward them for their services? Raise their allowance? Take them to Disney World? Not quite. To further her revenge on Jason, she also kills the kids. Take that Jason.

Medea's an interesting play all right, but I don't think we want to invite crazies to the feminist party.
In summary, Dixie Chicks = good, Medea = bad.
