Disney Princesses. Love them or hate them? It’s a double bind. I LOVE the pink and glitter and songs but HATE the message of waiting to be saved-by not only Prince Charming but birds and mice and anything but a brain.
I went to Target to buy a birthday party in a bag for a little girl turning six and couldn’t find anything but princesses of the Disney kind. Frustrating. I complained to my sister and she said, “Snow White made me feel beautiful and Belle made me feel smart.”
Wthuh? Did I have it wrong? Were the princesses empowering?
And then I realized it was an AWEsome challenge for my Changemaker course to focus on. Was this an opportunity for a product line? A new biz? A movement?
At least I know that we will NOT wait for Prince Charming to solve the problem.
