Old women get powers (whether they want them or not) and have to figure out what to do with them.
Hera is angry with Zeus and the rest of the male gods. She takes their powers, and comes to Earth, handing them out to random old women, saying that the weakest have the most wisdom, and further warns them to prove her right!
