Feminist Fables

Once upon a time,

John Smith talked about "savages",

and Pocahontas said, "bitch what?"

Once upon a time,

Sleeping Beauty woke from her sleep, looking at Prince Charming and said,

"White European features should not be the standard of beauty."

Once upon a time,

Jasmine looked at Jafar in her evil costume and said,

"This imagery of a brown woman in sexualized "ethnic" garb does nothing but satisfy the Western thirst for images of oppressed Eastern women."

Once upon a time,

Disney kind of got it right,

when they made Princess and the Frog.
