Response to Little Red Riding Hood The Little Red Riding Hood is a fairy tale that was originally written by the French writer Charles Perrault in 1697. Over time the story was re-written by various other writers like Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, James Thurber and Roald Dahlover. As each version of the story was re-written, the treatment of female roles have changed by progressing towards a more feminist viewpoint. The following paper will demonstrate how across time the different writers of the Little Red Riding Hood, fight for independence, knowledge and most of all, equality.

In the first edition is Little Red Riding Hood written by Charles Perrault, The Little Red Riding Hood was on the way to her grandmother 's house as she ran into the wolf who was craving to eat her but did not because there was a woodcutter that was working nearby. So the wolf finds out where she was headed to and goes to the grandmother 's house pretending to be the little girl and ate the grandmother. However the wolf’s craving was not yet satisfied as he had not eaten in more than 3 days, so he wore the grandmother’s nightclothes to deceive the little red riding hood into believing that he was the grandmother. So the little girl entered the house, unintentionally listening to the wolf and ended up getting eaten just like the grandmother. Both women were tricked easily without a doubt which shows that the role of females in this edition is practically showing the amount of intelligence they lack.
