Bettelheim hints that the stepsisters in the story are actually not terrible humans but are normal children. According to Bettelheim, the stepsisters are portrayed evil because the story is told from the inner thoughts of Cinderella, who is in direct competition with the stepsisters for her father’s love and the attention of the stepmother (par. 12). He states that sibling rivalry is “‘natural,’” and the only way to improve their status in the eyes of their parents is to prove dominance over the other siblings. Sibling rivalry is told as being complex and that it is difficult to determine the cause because the emotions by all persons are running high. These emotions lead to children thinking that their parents think of them less or that they are less than their siblings, which leads to misunderstood feelings and misrepresentation of the actual event. This is the very basis of the “Cinderella” story, according to Bettelheim. Schectman, on the contrary, says that not just Cinderella has experienced a loss; in fact, it was that everyone in the story had experienced a loss. The father lost his wife, the stepmother lost a husband, and the stepsisters lost a father. This gives the reader a look at Cinderella in a new and more natural light. Cinderella wants to be pitied, but the stepmother won’t pity her because she is dealing with her own loss. Schectman also states that Cinderella is fighting her own battle of acceptance because, as she sees it, her father is now having to split his love and attention from just her to incorporate the stepsisters and stepmother. Cinderella does not understand how her father can still love her as much as he did before the stepfamily came into the
Cinderella was just as I had imagined her, wearing her glittering blue gown and her feet sheathed in the shoes–the glass slippers. Smiling, she greeted me saying, “Hello Princess!” We took a quick picture together, and she asked me if I was attending the ball that night. Giggling, I told her, “I’m not going to a ball.”
The movie “Ever After” by Andy Tennant, and The short story Cinderella by Perrault, are both very different takes on the story of Cinderella. Perrault’s version of the story is the story that most of us have grown up with. It’s captivating and magical, but also it’s very one-dimensional, with a “magic pumpkin” and a “fairy godmother”. While, Tennant’s version is by far more realistic in nature, there is no magic pumpkin, but there is a prince who becomes her husband, an evil stepmother, and a pretty, kind hearted girl who slaves away doing as her stepmother demands. The “fairy godmother” does not randomly appear from no where, in “Ever After”, instead she is replaced by the great inventor Leonardo Da Vinic. In Perrault’s version of Cinderella, she is a passive woman waiting for a strong, male lead to come and rescue her, which he does. While in Tennant’s version, we get the chance to see that there are many more aspects to Cinderella’s character. She is kind hearted, but she is not so fragile and gentle, she is not a victim, and she does not fall in love with the Prince at first sight.
Women have found themselves at the bottom of society’s hierarchal pyramid for eons. Even though females make contributions that prove vital to the world’s function, they are still regarded as the weaker link. The female plight of constantly facing debasement is a pawn used to ensure compliance. It is a common notion that if one is demeaned enough, he or she will conform to the suggested persona. Society tests this notion through its treatment of women. It treats women poorly to cause them to comply with gender expectations. Not only do women have to face pressures of conformity in real life, but they also face intimidation in fairytales. Grimm’s Snow White and Cinderella perpetuate society’s notion that a woman is the inferior being whose value lies not only in her beauty but also in her abilities to perform domestic work and satisfy men.
“The Hero’s Journey”, Grimm’s Fairy Tales he talked about a little story name:Snow-White and Rose-Red.Well in the story all they showed about was that if they had some things to do all around them, but as in the story what on Snow-White would always do to Rose-Red and to show that there is a point where they would had some issues, “He held on to all the reeds and rushes, but it was of a little good,and he was forced to movements of the fish,and was in urgent danger to being dragged into the water.”

There is a version for almost every culture, but they all lead back to the original version told by the Brother’s Grimm. Although the story has changed through time, the main plot stays the same.

She finds it when at the ball, but when she has to leave, she leaves in a hurry and one of the slippers that she is wearing gets left behind at the ball and the Prince finds and starts to look for her. Even though they were separated for short periods of time they still find each other in the end.The Prince takes her to his palace and they get married. This general plot stays the same for all versions of the story, but the differences between Disney’s Cinderella and Grimm’s Cinderella are striking, and they deserve through examination.
Cinderella’s father does not appear to be home as much as the stepmother, and this illustrates the type of work and expectations for women’s and men’s jobs in the 1800s. The father is probably commuting to work, and this is evident through the fact that he never sees the cruelty experienced by Cinderella.
In both stories, she was mocked and treated like a slave by her stepsisters and stepmother. In the original Cinderella told by the Grimm brothers, it states, “Then she seated herself on a stool, drew her foot out of the heavy wooden shoe, and put it into the slipper, which fit like a glove. And when she rose up and the king's son looked at her face he recognized the beautiful maiden who had danced with him and cried, ‘That is the true bride!’ ” In both versions, Cinderella loses her shoe and the prince finds his one true love by putting it on her. In the modern version retold by Disney it states, “He obliged Cinderella to sit down, and, putting the slipper to her little foot, he found it went on very easily and fitted her as if it had been made of wax.” In both stories, how she was treated by her stepsisters before meeting the prince, and Cinderella’s way in marrying the prince was the

Lady Tremaine had two daughters, Anastasia and Drizella, who were around the same age as Cinderella. Cinderella was loved by all her animals especially the mice, Gus and Jaq.
