Jane Bennet parallels Rapunzel. She spends her time wishing that her prince, Mr. Bingley, will return and rescue her from her sorrows. Charlotte Lucas parallels Cinderella. She marries her prince, Mr. Collins, for his social status after talking to him for one night. Mary Bennet, studious and confident, and Eliza Bennet, passionate and unconventional, are women that society disapproves of.

He related to them with them by showing that even the most pure person imaginable does not get along with her sister. Cinderella did get over the past and embraced new beginnings with her sisters by her side. Perrault implemented the idea that sibling rivalry exists and if somebody as innocent as Cinderella can forgive everything her sisters did to her, so can everybody else. In reality it is hard to embrace forgiveness, but family should always be there for a person.
The narrator says this to further the idea that the character of Cinderella evolves during the entire tale. She begins being this beautiful girl to this bottom-feeder only bossed around by her own family. This is significant when the stepmother takes “her beautiful clothes away” and dresses Cinderella “in an old gray smock” with “wooden shoes” (Grimm 1). This change makes the character more vulnerable in which it can make the other characters push her around more. The taking away of beauty can also show the true colors of the other characters because it shows that they are insecure.
Advertisements use celebrities and Disney characters to give young girls the idea of being able to imitate their lifestyle. By buying the merchandise of these princesses young girls are buying this mentality and promoting the message. Playboy bunny and Disney princesses are different yet similar in the way that they exploit female bodies. For instance, in the film Mulan her mother and aunts state, “good breeding and a tiny waist will bring honor to them all,” as in her family name (“Disney and Sexism – You-Tube”). This implies that having a tiny waist is more attractive than a usual figure.
By looking back at the story, one can recall that Cinderella was a beautiful, yet ordinary to poorly dressed young woman who found her husband only after magic gave her the most beautiful gown and led her to a ball to meet her prince. In the text of a rewrite of “Cinderella” states, “This godmother of hers [Cinderella], who was a fairy, said to her ‘Thou wishest thou couldst go to the ball; is it not so?’ ‘Yes,’ cried Cinderella, with a great sigh” (Charles Perrault). This quote shows one how upset Cinderella was at this instant. She wept because she was not as beautiful as her step sisters and could not attend the King’s son’s ball. But recall how Cinderella’s attitude changes shortly after.
For instance, the movie shows Cinderella clothes torn and tattered during her submission and is rewarded by her behavior with an elegant gown and beautiful shoes as a gift for fulling such subservience allowing her to entice prince charming. The success of Cinderella is not on her innate qualities, rather on her loyalty to subservient powers. Observing even further, Cinderella’s clothing make her appear even more beautiful despite her inner deformities. There is a tension between the thematic representation of the attributes of the characters and theme of romantic love. The movies can be termed as fantasies since there is no love between the parties involved.
The tale is a about a pretty young girl Cinderella who lives with her step mother and step sisters. They make Cinderella’s life miserable by making her do all the housework but Cinderella never complained. She did everything happily believing that one day her someone (a man) will come and rescue her. Indeed it whatever is dreamt of came to be true. A prince came along and married her but this was only possible through fairy godmother who gave Cinderella the magical appearance (nice dress and shoes and etc ).
One day, all the woman are invited to a party at the royal palace, the purpose of which is to find a wife for the Prince. But the stepmother tells Cinderella that she cannot go unless she finishes all her chores-an impossible task in the short amount of time before the ball. The stepmother does not want her at the ball because Cinderella is much more beautiful than the woman's own daughters. After the stepmother and stepsisters have left for the ball, Cinderella looks around the messy house, and begins to weep. Suddenly, a fairy appears, tells Cinderella that she is her "Fairy Godmother" and makes her a deal.
As the Grand Duke was about the place the glass slipper on Cinderella’s foot, Lady Tremaine tripped him and the glass slipper shattered. However, Cinderella had the other glass slipper in her pocket, and of course, it fit! Cinderella and the Prince were soon married, and the kingdom rejoiced.
