how are female gender roles Portrayed in fairy tales?
hello everyone!
I am new here and I am trying to write my Dissertation for my Ma in Gender Studies and media so any help would be welcome! my subject is about the female gender roles portrayed in fairy tales and at the moment am trying to decide which fairy tales to use!
I wish to show how the stereotypes are maintained in fairy tales, through the years and are presented to children.

i think threw out history those storys come to us as lessons and lets face it a part of every woman knows she was incorage to see herself as the damsle in distress as much as we want to denie it. but it should also be made clear that fairy tales of young women being saved by prince charming cleared the way for storys of independence like Jane Eyre or Pride and prejdus where although its frowned upon to have a sense of self and a mind of ones own young female characters stood up and said i will not fit into that mould.
we went from being helpless and in need of rescue to heroins in our own right.
