Watch This: Disney Princesses Realize They Don’t Need A Man To Achieve Their Dreams

Disney Princesses Realize They Don't Need A Man
Why Does Every Princess Need To Have A Prince?

I think every feminist who grew up loving “The Little Mermaid” has that moment when it hits you: Ariel literally gave up her voice for a man. Then you start thinking about the gender dynamics in all your other favorite childhood movies, and pretty soon your Disney obsession has crashed down around you, a pile of misogynist, racist rubble where Cinderella’s gleaming castle used to be. This video asks a simple question: what if Disney princesses realized everything they gave up to snag their princes, and decided to be their own heroes instead? [YouTube]

Artistic Twists On Disney Princesses (And Other Heroines)

Merida, Disney Pixar’s first leading lady, was a popular costume for women this Halloween, according to Google. Between Merida, Kate Middleton, and the recent Snow White movies, we’ve had princesses on the brain this year. While our adult selves may cringe at princess culture and the outdated stereotypes that come along with it, there’s just something special about the Disney princesses we grew up with like Cinderella, Belle, Snow White, Aurora, and Ariel. And they aren’t all damsels in distress; the newer crop of the crowned ladies (including Princess Sofia the First and Brave’s Princess Merida) have attempted to be better role models for little girls.

If your efforts to land a rich prince have been unsuccessful thus far, maybe it’s time to switch up your footwear choices. An excellent bet for aspiring princesses? DSW’s new Glass Slipper collection, a collaboration with Disney to celebrate the October 2nd release of “Cinderella” on Blu-Ray. Available in stores and online on October 1st, the limited edition collection will include a variety of heels (none of which are actually made of glass) embellished with fairytale-worthy jewel and lace accents, priced from $59.95 to $89.95. Each shoe will include an embossed carriage logo, but alas, no tracking mechanism for that inevitable moment when it falls off your foot as you rush out of a ball at the stroke of midnight. Guess you’ll still have to rely on a determined prince and Craigslist missed connections to be reunited with your lost slipper. [Racked]
