Unlike Disney’s anti- feminist version, often characterizing girls as the damsel’s in distress, Perrault’s gives girls the look of independence. He shows young girls that they do not always need a prince charming by giving Beauty the decision that could change her life. In classic Disney movies. Such as Snow White and Sleeping Beauty, the princesses’ lives depend on the prince’s decision whether or not to give them a kiss. That being said makes it no surprise that Disney constantly gets an anti-feminist label on all of their creations.
A past where only they existed, and no one else, but the circumstances of the present affect them from doing so. Daisy is as fragile as a flower. Daisy Buchanan is known to be the beauty of Louisville, yet she is very weak and immature and doesn't think of the consequences of her actions.

Also, they will consider themselves to b... ... middle of paper ... ...r society. This is a sign of dependency because she does whatever the society wants her to do and do not consider what she wants. Disney shows that women can limit themselves from things men do however, it’s wrong because everyone has to fight for themselves in order to survive. Disney princess movies are inappropriate for young girls. People blame adult media for a child’s corruption, but they fail to see where it all started: Disney princess movies.
The whole plot of Cinderella revolves around her pure nature. The happy ending would not be as gratifying and deserved, causing much less resonation with the audience. Cinderella’s innocence clashes with her new family as they are selfish and devious. Unbeknownst to Cinderella, she is the envy of her two step sisters as they always want more and better. If they were not envious of their step-sister, they would not prohibit her from going to the ball.
She had the time of her life because her mother told her to never leave the tower but she did and she loved the outdoors so much. When Rapunzel first got to a tree, she swung around it with her hair and she was so excited because she has never felt anything like it before. While she is having the time of her life, she also knows that going against her mother's words is wrong but she does it anyway with some serious doubts. Eugene tries his hardest to cheer her up.

Someone who is ready for a happily ever after should fulfill stability and reassurance on someone she might spend the rest of her life with. Every women is looked upon as weaker than a man, and by these fairy tales showing the fibs and lies that all women should find their lovers in a similar way is completely unfair to us. Cinderella should not have a happily ever after is because she is a passive person and doesn't stand up for herself. Cinderella is possibly eighteen or older and she still continues to get bossed around by her stepmother and stepsisters when we both know she can easily move out and start a new life. She is shown as passive person every single time her family bosses her around to do something and does what they say.
Cinderella differs from other princesses in any other fairy tale. She can be portrayed as a heroine in the eyes of the young, as well as the old, which is what makes her such a great and unique character. Cinderella overcomes numerous barriers, never accepting defeat and is kind to all, even those who do not reciprocate her goodness. She deals with her evil stepmother and stepsisters in the best behaviour, and in the end, she is able to obtain what she had worked so hard to achieve.

Disney movies can teach young girls stereotypes of the ideal body image, how they should act, and unrealistic expectations of love. Giroux thinks that Disney movies have a negative impact on children for teaching them stereotypical ideas. One big problem seen in Disney Movies is false body image. Take “Sleeping Beauty” for example, with her stunning beauty, small waist and perfect hair, she is portraying that her look is the ideal and women should look like her. Young girls seeing these Disney Princesses might think that the only way they can look good is if they have a model’s physique, which is wrong because children shouldn’t be concerned about appearance and impressing others.
In Disney movies the men has to always save the women usually with a true love’s kiss, this causes the epidemic of women now days waiting for price charming to come and save them. Little girls long for approval and to feel beautiful, although they never expect their beloved Disney Princess to make these little girls feel self-conscious, and have low self-esteem which include behavior problems as adults. During the time that little girls have a misunderstanding about what it means to fall in love and so that they have problems with their relationships later on in life as they grow up. Girls and women alike still have difficulty understanding what it means to be attractive since the Disney Princesses shows younger women who dress in elegant gowns, who have slim fit bodies and perfectly gorgeous hair. They will spend large amounts of money to have expensive clothing like the Disney princesses and have work done on their bodies such as plastic surgery in order to achieve what it means to be beautiful.
The people that are against the portrayal of women in the Disney movies are failing to recognize the underlying concepts in these movies. For example, Belle, in Beauty and the Beast, was well educated, Mulan went to war despite the consequences, and Merida, in Brave, stood up to her mother in refusal to marry. The Disney Princesses desired intelligence, bravery, strength, and independence—not true love’s kiss. Beauty and the Beast is a Disney movie that debuted in 1991. When it first came out, the idea of the beautiful girl falling in love with a man because of what is inside of him was not a new concept.
