Many years ago, the colors were opposite. Pink was a boy color and blue was a girl color, hence the color of Cinderella's dress. The author tells us that in the book “The Paper Bag Princess,” a princess goes to rescue her prince charming and he rejects her because while saving him, her dress gets ruined as well as her hair. He rejects her and tells her to dress how she should, but she just runs off to live a happy life alone.
It is nearly impossible for a tale to be passed down generations and still stay the same. The fairy tale “Cinderella” told by the Grimm brothers is almost 206 years old, and differences can be seen between the modern “Cinderella” story and the original. In “Cinderella,” by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, a young girl named Cinderella is treated like a servant by her family. Luckily she is gifted with beautiful clothing, enabling her to attend a festival, meeting her one true love. Cinderella gets married to the prince, and the step-sisters are punished by getting pecked in the eyes by birds.
Disney movies not only constructed my ideas of femininity, but they also imposed gendered sexuality on me at an early age through the use of patriarchy within these films. The message that a woman is lost without a man upholds the dominant social position of men and the submissive social position of women. Due to the emphasis on hetero-romantic love and the construction of heterosexual relationships as magical and natural, I learned to value my appearance as a little girl by wearing makeup, wearing nice clothes and styling my hair so that I could get my prince-charming, who would then validate my femininity. Moreover, my idolization of Disney princesses refined my knowledge on

In Cinderella, the theme reveals the world wide moral that being beautiful on the inside is better than being beautiful on the outside. In the traditional story of Cinderella the stepfamily are very ugly on the inside yet beautiful on the outside. Cinderella is beautiful both inside and out, but she is punished for her kindness and beauty. The stepfamily float around gloating about themselves and they push Cinderella down metaphorically. In the end of the story Cinderella and her interior beauty are rewarded by marrying the prince, while the ugly stepfamilies evilness gets no reward.
In “Donkeyskin,” Charles Perrault tells the story of a princess whose mother passed away wishing the king to only marry someone who is smarter and more beautiful than she is. The king wish to marry his own daughter so she ran away with the lavish gowns and donkey skin he had given her. In Jack Zipes “Breaking The Disney Spell,” he argues that Disney appropriates the fairy tales and injects his “all-American” morals and values into them. By putting his idealistic vision into films for everyone, Zipe claims that Disney insults the historical integrity of the folklore tradition, deceiving audiences with an illusion of happy fairy tales. Like Zipes, who argues that fairy tales validates the social norms and power structures, Charles Perrault’s Donkeyskin shows that the value of women is their beauty and for them wait for the male to make the first move.
According to Panttaja, there is no evidence to suggest that the prince loved Cinderella or that she loved him. In the story, Cinderella is described as deformed, and with the magic of Cinderella 's mother, the clothes that Cinderella attends the ball in are magical and therefore cause the prince to see a beautiful woman. The personal qualities of Cinderella are most important and those are her looks, because before her mother 's magic, she was seen as deformed and not beautiful; so without the mother 's help, the prince would not have been interested in Cinderella. 6.

The Victorian era placed a woman’s value in how much money and beauty she possessed. In Charlotte Bronte’s coming of age novel, Jane Eyre, outward beauty deceives as it ironically represents a true evil in oneself. The beautiful Reed family, who resides at Gateshead, has cruel hearts as they boast about their luxuries as they deny them to their “outsider” blood. Even though Mrs. Reed promised her deceased husband that she would care for Jane as if she was one of her own children, Mrs. Reed encourages everyone in the house to never hesitate to tell Jane that she is a
Fairy tales are stories that try to teach readers morals and standards that society has chosen as to what makes a person good. In “Practicing Medicine Can Be Grimm Work”, Valerie Gribben believes fairy tales can connect to reality, make difficult times easier, and they can guide people to do the right thing. Fairy tales can help guide people through life both directly and indirectly, they instruct people on how to behave and react to certain situations. Through fairy tales we learn how kindness, morals, helpfulness, and so on.

Fairy tales characters for children are the construction workers of the adult world, and as the children mature into adulthood, the gates of imagination are opened and the storybook characters morph into newspaper headlines; suddenly, the clock strikes twelve and the glitz and glamour disappear as the realization that “human nature is not innately good, that conflict is real [and] life is harsh before it is happy” (Tatar 306) sinks in. James Braddock, as he attends the ball, assumes the role of Atlas, holding the weight of the working class

Both, Cinderella and Snow White can be dissected and analyzed through the Feminist theory. The two tales contain gender roles stereotypes, unrealistic importance of superficial beauty and the view of men as salvation for the girl's oppressed lives.
