Gender Ideology in Grimm and Disney Why are young girls in society expected to look up to perfect princesses as role models? When did singing with animals and loving to cook and clean become admirable traits? Since 1937, movies have been made about the Grimm fairy tale princesses that highlight these ideals. Not only are these things inaccurate in real life; they are also altered from their original stories.
Iconic fairy tales such as Grimm Brother's Cinderella and Snow White are not innocent tales about young girls achieving their dreams but are rather misogynist stories. The two fairy tales have the similarity of involving a young girl who is oppressed by a wicked step mother then later on, the girl is saved by marrying a prince.

After this day, women gained more equality, access to education, jobs in the workforce, and a change in domestic role.
