Yet, despite the fact that the more modern versions of the same fairytales tend to work on portraying a more feminist side of the story, the beautiful girl always gets the Prince (or finds any form of love), falls in love, and becomes rich. If not, then misery envelopes the protagonist. Feminist critics try to shed a light on the reality of these stories and how the moral lesson is always the same. Even when it comes to real-life based fairy tales, like Pocahontas, where a young twelve-year-old Native American tribe princess is kidnapped from her family and forced to marry, the only “feminist” version that we hear of today is a Native American young woman who falls in love with a European man who is forcefully taken away from her. Despite the fact that these women had to suffer great ordeals during those times, fairytales have decided to convert this dreadful story into a story of love.

In actuality, Zelda bore a resemblance to Rosalind because Zelda too was independent, did what she yearned to do and expressed her viewpoints without inhibitions or restrictions (Solomon). For her, women such as Rosalind must be admired because of their courage, their recklessness and spend-thriftiness. The first quarter of the 20th century saw several young women in America as “flappers” because it was a craze adapted by all. F.
