In many fairy tales and animated movies for kids, the princess is shown as lovely, demure, and passive, while the prince is depicted as adventurous, courageous, and active. Do these characters perpetuate myths that no longer serve us and limit choices for both genders?
Isn’t it time for a new hero – a princess who has active feminine energy – also known as swagger – a princess who is making her own choices about the future? The Girl’s Guide to Swagger, along with author and media studies professor Rebecca Hains, have started a campaign to convince Disney and Dreamworks to change these gender stereotypes send a princess to college in an upcoming movie.
