Disney princesses may be better role models than some claim

Disney princesses take a lot of heat for being poor influences on little girls, because Disney associates them with fashion, make-up, etc. Some say it is easy to pick on the princess pantheon due to their dominance in media and merchandise, but theĀ Voyages Extraordinaires blog published a (quite lengthy) critique on the Disney Princess line that shows them in a new light. Cory Gross, the author, first outlines in his critique about feminism standards and the usual argument against the ladies. He then argues that the princesses, in fact, are strong heroines that are equal to their male counterparts and do teach little girls how to find their inner strengths. He looks at each of the main princesses starting with Jasmine and ending with Snow White, pointing out how they are not the anti-feminine role models that some may claim they are.
