Both authors indicate parental and business opinions of princesses in pursuance of appealing to many readers. Orenstein expresses her dislike towards Disney princesses by proposing that young girls learn incorrect values from the original princess movies, since they teach women unrealistic love and beauty standards.

Many Disney Princesses are portrayed as strong-headed women in male-dominated societies. In Disney’s Aladdin, Princess Jasmine appears to be no different, as she very openly rejects her role as a woman and as a princess. She despises the way that men treat her, and she desires to be more like a commoner so she can have more freedom. However, looking at the film through both a gender and a class lens, there are several examples where she relies on these very roles that she fights against because she doesn’t know how else to survive.

When Hermia tells her that it's not her fault, Helena says: “Helena: None but your beauty; would that fault were mine!” (Act 1, Scene 1, Page 8). This caused a lot of tension and conflict between the 2 characters. However, in act 3, the tables turn.
In the beginning of the story Georgiana is characterized as being a foolish young girl that is extremely weak. She is dependent on other people's judgment and when her husband hates her birthmark that everyone thought made her so beautiful she asks him, “Then why did you take me from my mother's side? You cannot love what shocks you!”(page 1, paragraph 6). She was dependent on her mother to tell her what to do constantly and how she told her she was so beautiful, therefore, when she had a change in scenery it was confusing to her. After being told multiple times a day that he could not stand to look at her she figures out that when she compliments him she receives compliments in return.
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. Grimm uses the characters of Cinderella and Snow White to perpetuate the idea that women should lead quietly domestic lives. In Cinderella, Cinderella spent most of her time in a kitchen.

Cléo is a young pop star, but she cannot even read music. In spite of her success in commercials as a star, she seems to have less power than the songwriters who do not acknowledge Cleo as an actual star.

Mirrors in the film reflect Cléo love of beauty along with the wills of Cléo’s search for her identity in this modernized consumer society.
In Cinderella, Lady Tremaine was harsh towards her own stepdaughter. Not only was Lady Tremaine in a pugnacious relationship with Cinderella, so were the evil stepsisters.

This caused the failure of Lady Tremaine and the stepsisters to create a familial relationship with Cinderella.
Gender Ideology in Grimm and Disney Why are young girls in society expected to look up to perfect princesses as role models? When did singing with animals and loving to cook and clean become admirable traits? Since 1937, movies have been made about the Grimm fairy tale princesses that highlight these ideals. Not only are these things inaccurate in real life; they are also altered from their original stories.
