Furthermore, mother was also the reason why the father went to steal some rampion as she said “Ill die if I do not get any Rampion”. This again highlights the stereotypical nature of women nagging and being troublesome as if she did not beg and cry about the rampion, the conflict would not have happened. Similarly in Red Riding Hood Although most fairy tales by the Grimms brothers fall under a lot of gender stereotypes, there are some fairy tales that show otherwise. These stories which challenge the gender stereotypes of women being portrayed as the weak and vulnerable are not as well known as others however there are quite a
"Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo!" said the Fairy Godmother, waving her wand again. Cinderella was now wearing a beautiful gown and sparkling glass slippers.

Into The Woods The musical “Into the Woods” by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine is a metaphor for life in many ways, but the most prominent one is the woods symbolizing life itself. The prologue song “Into The Woods” is about each of the character’s dreams and wishes. Cinderella wishes to go to the festival, Little Red Riding Hood wants to deliver bread to Granny, and the Baker and his wife want to have a child, even though the witch cursed their lineage. In order to accomplish and reach for some of these goals, they must go into the “woods” and take some risks. Just as we must take risks in our personal lives to accomplish our goals, being that is the only way to achieve what we aspire to do.

This is a great book but still isn’t good enough to be one of my favorites. The book can be slow paced at times with a somewhat confusing plot, but overall it is a great story of a girl who needs to find her way in life. Welcome to the Protectorate, a town that has been casted over by the fear and darkness of the evil witch who haunts the forest. The witch will leave the villagers alone at one terrible cost, a sacrifice of a newborn each year. The grand elder, Gherland, his nephew, Antain, and the warriors known as the sisters, went to the house of the newborn that was to be sacrificed.
Children are born each winter, but women never see their children and children never know their parents. Twice have we been sent to the Palace of Mating, but it is an ugly and shameful matter, of which we do not like to think.” ■ In this quotation we see the sophisticated nature of one's rules of society. This representation of the concept of society is shown when Equality 7-2521 says of how his community is “shameful and ugly.” Equality 7-2521 explains how the women are assigned by the Council of Eugenics to give birth each and every winter. The children are never allowed to see their birth parents and the parents are never allowed to see their children after their birth. Equality 7-2521 has said that he has gone to the Palace of Mating twice but doesn’t like to go for this is what will truly damage the
At first, she didn’t think much of it, but when it took a watch out of its waistcoat-pocket she realised this wasn’t natural and she ran after it. She saw the rabbit disappear into a hole under the hedge and jumped right after it. After a very long fall, she ended up in a dark hall with a table and a tiny golden key on top of it. The key belonged to a tiny door but she knew she would never fit through. Then she found a bottle labelled with the words ‘DRINK ME’.

High up the treetops, the leaves swing but on the floor, the grass was hobbled and unmoving. Shrills of cries and the obnoxious wailing of Angel was heard and nobody knew how to calm her—even her Mom. Her Mom was in pained to see her daughter looking so fragile and vulnerable at that time, when she use to jump around and fight with her brother to gain his Mom’s attention. Nothing she had ever experienced in her life was more painful than that moment; knowing her daughter’s pain and not being able to do a thing to help. She turned away and rubbed the back of her neck.
