dc.description.abstractFairy tales are common in the upbringing of children. In these fairy tales, there are various stereotypes or gender roles that are upheld, but could be detrimental to a child's development. Looking at three fairy tales, popularized by Disney, reveals that the female images portrayed are often too difficult to achieve, but society still expects young girls to conform to this ideal of the perfect girl. In The Little Mermaid (1989), Beauty and the Beast (1991), and Sleeping Beauty (1959), the female characters are portrayed as being damsels in distress and often have to change themselves to have a happy ending. The purpose of this project is to provide young girls with a more realistic image of a strong female character.en_US
