Twyla- Twyla is introduced at the very beginning of the story as the girl with the mom that “danced all night” (Morrison,1), she is also the Narrator and a main character. Twyla mentions her mother at the beginning of the story. Mary has neglected her daughter which is why she ends up in the orphanage. Twyla’s mother has taught her daughter to be prejudice against people of Roberta’s race saying that “they never wash their hair and they smelled funny” (Morrison,10), throughout the story some of these prejudices disappear and come about again when the two women meet again and again over long time spans.

Personally I think Curley’s Wife from the book “Of Mice and Men” by John Steinbeck is a huge American Dreamer. Curley’s wife has always wanted to be an actress, so she dresses in pretty dresses and does her makeup every day. She also wants more freedom, Curley,
After enduring cruel treatment from her own family for years, Ashputtle finally gets her own happily ever after and her family members receive what they deserve: cruel punishment. In the story, on page 858, the text states, “On the day of Ashputle’s wedding, the two sisters came and tried to ingratiate themselves and shared in her happiness…both sisters were punished with blindness to the end of their days for being so wicked and false” (Grimm). The stepsisters were so forbidding and cruel towards Ashputtle that in the end, receive what they deserve which doesn’t happen in some of the other Cinderella stories worldwide. The Grimm brothers chose to make their retelling of the story have an unusual ending (most just end with Cinderella getting married) and in doing so, unintentionally exemplified the archetypal narrative pattern of a just end that rewards good and punishes evil. But this doesn’t just appear once in the story.
The Grimm Brothers stories have influenced our culture’s movies, books, and TV shows into making young girls believe they are helpless and need a hero to save them. All good movies have been influenced one way or another from fairy tales. Though there are many things that could be studied this paper will only be looking at how movies portray the infamous Grimm Brother’s idea that all women need a hero. In The Princess Bride, Buttercup is a typical beautiful blonde haired girl who is taken captive by the villain and forced to marry him. Instead of Buttercup trying to escape or argue she simply goes along with the wedding and plans to kill herself on her wedding night.

“Cinderella, Inc.” by Sue and Allen Gallehugh has a great relation with the 21st Century America society. It is common today’s days that people, in especial the younger one are not opened to new opportunities or to know others more deeply. Cinderella judged her new stepmother and stepsisters even before to take the time and see if they were good persons and may be just judge them by the stereotype that all stepmothers are bad and cruel. At the same time, she tried to play the role of a victim which made her fall in depression and made severe her situation by eating too much and seating in a corner to cry out how unfortunate she was. Sadly, that is a reality in our society and everyone should be aware of it, and try to help those people that
