**DISCLAIMER** This is not a “feminist rant” nor am I am expert on feminism. It is just an opinion piece.
This blog is written by a 19 year old female in the UK so, like many others, a person who’s childhood consisted of watching countless Walt Disney classics and dreaming of the fairy tale ideals that they create.
For most people, when thinking about Walt Disney films, we think of Princesses and Princes, and heroes saving damsels in distress. Think Prince Charming saving Cinderella from her wicked step-family. Aladdin saving Jasmine from having to marry a prince she didn’t love. Hercules saving Meg from Hades. The list goes on. But it’s argued that very few Disney productions have a female heroes that a “handsome prince” didn’t have to save. Is that really the case?
