En 1938, il ne faisait pas bon être une femme chez Disney comme en témoigne cette lettre de rejet exhumée aujourd’hui sur Flickr. Mary V. Ford, qui avait écrit au studio d’animation pour connaître les critères d’admission à l’école Disney qui formait ses animateurs, avait ainsi reçu la réponse suivante : «Les filles ne travaillent pas du côté créatif pour préparer les dessins animés pour l’écran, car cette tâche est exclusivement réservée aux jeunes hommes. Pour cette raison, les candidatures des filles ne sont pas examinées pour l’école préparatoire.
A piece of fan art and the particularities of French to English translation may have solved our Disney Princess problem: Feminist parents (and grandparents and aunts and uncles and siblings) often worry about their young girls getting sucked into Disney Princess culture, and not just because of the intimidating price tags at the Disney store. We don’t want our kids growing up with female role models solely labelled with the coveted status of “princess,” and therefore defined by their relationships with men (be they fathers or husbands), and admired largely for their status over others. It’s pretty much the last thing a feminist would want for their kids. However, criticism of Disney Princess culture often overlooks that Disney has created a battalion of strong female characters who are in fact fantastic role models for children, particularly since the dawn of the Disney Renaissance .
From the Mary Sue : “On May 11th Brave‘s Merida will be officially crowned as the 11th Disney Princess, the impact of which is that Disney will be selling more stuff with her on it, I guess? Anyway. Along with the “coronation ceremony,” to be held at Walt Disn ey World, Merida’s gotten a new redesign…” A great summary from Toward the Stars: <img class="alignnone size-full wp-image-13456" alt="towardthestars" src="http://reelgirl.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/towardthestars.jpg" width="613" height="465" />
Girls the world over often go through a "princess phase," enthralled with anything pink and pretty — most especially the Disney princesses. When it happened to Peggy Orenstein's daughter Daisy, the contributing writer for the New York Times Magazine stepped back to examine the phenomenon. She found that the girlie-girl culture being marketed to little girls was less innocent than it might seem, and can have negative consequences for girls' psychological , social and physical development. Orenstein's exploration took her to Walt Disney World, the American Girl flagship store in New York City and a child beauty pageant. She details her quest in the new book, "Cinderella Ate My Daughter: Dispatches from the Front Lines of the New Girlie-Girl Culture" (Harper Collins, Jan. 25). LiveScience: How did you get inspired to write the book?
“Oh, for God’s sake,” I snapped. “Do you have a princess drill, too?” She stared at me as if I were an evil stepmother. “Come on!” I continued, my voice rising.
This is my new Disney Princess series....after researching into them whilst I spent time in New York in 2010, I wanted to empower the princesses with the thought in mind that this would empower young girls. Tonight I went to see the amazing 'Missrepresentation' film and the quote 'you can't be what you can't see' really inspired me. It's what I wanted to do with this work.
We all grew up with Disney films and have a slew of wonderful female role models to guide us through life’s tough road to our own very own happy ending. Lucky for all of us mostly-white, heteronormative ladies, we can still learn lessons from these fine women of the animated screen. I present you with my favorites – see if you can spot who you identify with most (note: your mother has to be dead if you want to be a princess)! The Princess – You’re not really sure why you got a happy ending, but you’re also not the most stable person since you spend your free time making tiny clothes for tiny animals.
Depuis l'intéressante série d'Euterpe sur les princesses Disney et suivantes , j'ai trouvé sur le site I blame the kyriarchy des princesses Disney féministes -détournées évidemment ! Le Prince : ...et nous vivrions heureux La Princesse : est-ce que cela signifie que j'aurais ma propre carrière et que je contrôlerai mes finances ? La Princesse : Houah, pardon mais quelle partie de moi, alors que je dors ici seule, implique mon consentement ? Blanche-Neige : Ils n'ont pas arrêté de me dire que je dois haïr les hommes, puisque je suis féministe. Ils n'ont rien voulu entendre de ce que j'ai dit à propos des rôles de genre qui oppriment les hommes et les femmes ! La Princesse : J'ai écrit un essai sur la théorie queer pour mon cours de littérature.
Once upon a time, Kelly Macdonald was a wee lass growing up in Glasgow, Scotland, with no desire to be a princess like the other girls. She was more fixated on becoming Calamity Jane, the rifle-toting American frontierswoman played by Doris Day in the 1953 movie of the same name. "Princesses were not really my thing," says the 36-year-old actress in her Scottish burr. "I would go around pretending I was on my horse.
It's hard to be liberated in a clamshell bikini. by Sonia Saraiya I just saw Brave , and it got me thinking about the grand tradition of Disney princesses.
