Anyone know of any gender stereotypes in fairy tales?
I am doing a gender roles comparison essay for English class. I have decided to write mine on gender stereotypes in fairy tales. I already have a few which include:
Powerful female character is always the villain and is ultimately defeated.
The main female’s main dream is for her prince to come.
The main female is usually a homemaker.
Wish to share anymore? I know there are a lot out there.
PS- I am mainly focusing on Disney because that is what I have readily available.
