Once upon a time… Fairystales needed new endings. Make your own. Wink. What’s your new fairytales?
There are things we love about fairytales. Walt Disney, two-toned villainess‘ getting their way, Angelina Jolie looking fierce and princess costumes. Though there are more disagreeable elements. Like Disney princesses being used to advertise plastic surgery and stereotypical gender roles.
We believe women should do it their way and whatever makes you happy is your fairytale. Happiness is acceptance and not being held back because of your gender. Tell us your new fairytales by commenting.
We’re also loving new discussions on pop culture and its relationship to women. Anything that broadens the representation of the female experience is good with us.
Feminist Frequency has been making some insightful videos discussing women’s representation. Check out their interesting video using The Bechdel Test to check the use of women in films nominated for Oscars:
Check out Marion Cotillard and Forehead Tittaes.
