Disney Princesses

whatdoesitmeantobeawoman:

The culture under the Disney label has had so much influence on the feminine imagination and children’s perception of life for so many generations that it is not possible to study girl culture and women’s formation of identity without taking “Disney” into serious consideration.

In the early films, the princess was often the heroine of a traditional fairy tale. She maintained a certain standard of beauty, obedience and sweetness. Frequently, the early films feature a damsel-in-distress theme, where the heroine needs rescuing by a handsome nearby prince. 

Cinderella, for instance, is doomed to stay in her enforced servitude until she can escape by marriage. While these tales did draw on traditional legends, they quickly lost favor as the rights of women became a serious issue in America.

Characters like Cinderella, Snow White 



and Sleeping Beauty



Seem incapable of helping themselves out of their own troubles. They are all forced to rely on men for their escape, even trading themselves in marriage in order to get out of their unpleasant situation. 

In the 1980s the Disney princess was reinvented with the release of The Little Mermaid. While Ariel the mermaid does still marry her true love at the end of the movie, she is written as a rebellious and ambitious girl who plays a serious role in her own success. The enormous success of The Little Mermaid led to a tremendous revival, both for the Disney princess and the Disney animation department.



Soon, Disney princesses could do just about anything they wanted. Pocahontas bravely put her own life at risk to save an innocent stranger.



While the wily Mulan fought off an entire invading Hun army and saves China from total destruction.




Girls of the 1980s and 1990s were given a new set of role-models in these fiery princesses.



Which did little to diminish the enjoyment of the earlier princesses as well. Today, girls and boys can choose identity figures from the Disney canon that match their own preferences or ambitions, with Cinderella and Jasmine holding equal popularity among Disney princess fans.

The Disney princess is an important figure for more reasons that simply its influence on young girls. Disney films in general tend to feature female heroines more frequently than male heroes, for a variety of reasons. Some experts, like writer and Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon believe that it is easier even for men to identify with a female power figure than a male one. 

Cultural gender stereotyping allows powerful females to remain more in contact with their weaknesses and insecurities, where typical male heroes are often portrayed as hard and consistently strong. Some suggest that the Disney princess provides a universal role model for viewers of both sexes, whereas a Disney princess may be more difficult to make accessible to a wide audience.

Do you think Disney Princesses have a direct effect on the way young girls view themselves?

We will discuss this more in our next post! 

Stay tuned for a video asking younger girls the question: What does it mean to be a woman?
