Then and Now: Incorporating Feminism into Fairy Tales
Fairy tales have been transformed into new adaptations for centuries. Oral tales were transcribed into literary works hundreds of years ago, and today new versions of fairy tales continue to be published. Over time, the implementation and use of gender roles has evolved in new renditions of these stories. Female fairy tale characters have acquired power and strength that was not present in the earliest versions of these popular tales. These changes can be attributed to historical changes in societal norms, including society’s increasing progression toward gender equality in recent centuries. These changes in culture and societal beliefs are so powerful that they affect ideas incorporated into new renditions of stories that were written generations ago.
