Defending Cinderella

This may seem odd after my earlier post about the bechdel test but I don’t think it is. In this video I dissect the story of Cinderella as told through the modern day device of film. Is it dangerous for young girls to read about prince charming carrying them away to happily ever after?

It could be but I think if managed correctly there are positive things that can be taught young girls through the story that has persisted in one form or another for over 400 years.

What do you think? I know the video is kind of long but I worked hard to make the content good, so please make a comment. Let’s start a discussion. Especially if you have young girls I’d love to hear what you think of the various versions of Cinderella I mention and the essence of the story.

Thanks! I love you guys so much.

I learned how to add narration to videos and came up with this.  Let me know what you think.
