''She was a beautiful woman, but she was proud and arrogant, and she could not stand it if anyone might surpass her in beauty. She had a magic mirror.

When she later learns that her beauty is surpassed by that of Snow White's she becomes obsessed with regaining her status as the most desirable, so she orders the death of Snow White.
Chapter 1 Introduction I started to watch Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs when I was four years old. I was attracted by the beauty of Snow White and her kind-hearted personality which this made me to repeatedly watch this animated film. However, I was frightened by the horrifying image of the peddler in the film. At time, I was just a little kid who was indeed vulnerable to the media content. Looking at how the stepmother scheme on Snow White, I firmly believe that stepmothers are wicked.
From the characters, we knew the Red Queen is depicted as a brutal, violent, frightened, and masculine. This can be prove from the scene Red Queen successfully snatched the crown from the White Queen’s side by the sudden attack and caused Mad Hatter’s family destroyed. One of the main reason Red Queen’s personality is brutal and violent towards people is because she lived without loved. Red Queen made others felt frightened to her. However, the White Queen is illustrated as soft and feminine but lacks direct action.

In snow white we look at the Evil queen and her desire to be the fairest of them all. And to become the fairest of them all she would expunge any thing that stood in her way including her step daughter. The evil queen had the magical mirror that she would always ask “Mirror mirror on the wall who is the fairest of them all” and for so long the mirror would always answer back and say that she was the fairest, until one fateful day when the mirror said that snow white -was the fairest and the mirror never lies so she was angered and full of antipathies. Her desire to be the fairest drove her so much that you would think that she seemed full of misogyny. So of course it wasn 't a surprise that she tried to kill her step daughter snow white, but the man she sent to kill her and snow white had to start a new genesis.
Mirror Mirror defies the patriarchal—and frankly a little sexist—way of story-telling we have become accustomed to, showing the audience that women are capable of being the hero in their own story. Snow White’s character is drastically different from the house-cleaning, apple-eating damsel in distress we are used to. Instead, she is a bandit—a fierce woman who is not afraid to fight her own battles and save the prince along the way. Snow White herself encapsulates the essence of this change in the following lines from the movie: “I read so many stories where the prince saves the princess in the end. I think it’s time we changed that ending.” As a woman who grew up reading tales about fragile princesses waiting for their knights in shining armor to sweep in and save the day, I cannot tell you how good hearing those lines feels, and that is the biggest reason why this adaptation is worthwhile.
Snow White starts to live with the seven dwarfs in order to take refuge from the queen and they live happily. However, Snow White eats a poisoned apple carelessly given by a witch who is actually the queen, and she dies of the poison. Finally, the prince’s kiss revives her and he and she live together in his castle
Woman are traditionally seen to be fragile and pure (white being the symbol of purity), thus “Little Snow White” does a good job in emphasising this ideology of women. The Queen’s blood being drawn is yet another symbol of the fragility of women, however this idea can be extended to include the image of womanhood through monthly menstruation. Furthermore, as demonstrated in the Grimm Brother’s “Aschenputtel”, Snow White must do “heavy work from morning to night” in order to be allowed to stay at the seven Dwarfs cottage (118). Thus, Snow White must do traditional feminine tasks through keeping house – cooking, cleaning, washing and sewing – in order to earn her place. All of the motifs mentioned above are strongly associated to the view of a female’s
