In general, Disney has not been known for its
feminist films. Their films tend to not only be
misguided and narrow when it comes to gender,
but also when it comes to race and class. The
story of Cinderella is certainly not very feminist
- the evil stepmother, the beautiful sister compared
to the stepsisters, the fact that a woman needs
a prince to save the day.
about Cinderella's life in the context of your
own - would you want it to work out that way (not
the ends, but the means)? Yes we all might want
life to eventually get that easy, but, one, we
don't want it to happen via a man; and, two, if
it did happen that way, we are likely not be happy
since our happiness will be found through someone
else. I hope that helps.
