woman trickster

Lewis Hyde soley uses the pronoun "he" when he describes the trickster, but in Prodigal Summer Deanna has characteristics of a trickster.  I am going to compare and contrast Deanna and Eddie Bondo to prove that women can be tricksters as well as men.  My final, open-ended thought is going to consider that Deanna returns home from the mountain because of her pregnancy, while Eddie Bondo moves onward fulfilling his life as a trickster.  Are women fundamentally unable to be tricksters because they can bear children?
