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. Jasmine is the only female lead in the movie, and she very much dislikes the role of women in Agrabah.

Thirdly, he tries to normalize the operation to make her feel like it’s a common thing, no big deal, he tells her she doesn’t “have to be afraid. [he’s] known lots of people that have it done”(53). After all of these comments he made to convince her of his decision he tries to play it off like he wants her to do whatever she feels is right. The final key to manipulation: make it seem like it was her decision when in reality he manipulated her into making this choice all along. Manipulation is unfortunately a common theme in relationships and this short story does an incredible job by shining light on that issue in human relationships.

She knows that otherwise, others would talk behind her back, destroying the high image that she had been trying so hard to maintain. The old aristocrat no longer cares for her personal health as she prioritized parties over all else because she does not know any other way to keep her face.

In this stage she is expected to feel comfortable in the human culture, and everything in the human culture will start to make sense (Russell 240). Claudette does not match the expectation in this stage due to the Sausalito dance. When she got to the dance, she met Kyle, her brother. Their conversations were very awkward, she, “narrowed my eyes at Kyle and flattened [her] ears, something [she] hadn’t done for months” (Russell 242 and 243) because she had changed into a human. She naturally resorted to her wolf like instincts to flatten her ears when she was in this awkward conversation with Kyle, meaning she has not met the expectation of the stage.
