name is Sara and I am a student
at Western Michigan University.
Currently I am doing a project
on fairy tales, and how they
have traditionally written about
women. I would appreciate any
information you have about these
fairy tales, or any new fairy
tales that portray women differently.
Any other resources you might
know about would also be appreciated.
Thank You, Sara
for your note to Feminist.com.
Of course, Bruno Bettleheim
is the "fairy tale expert,"
so that would be my first recommendation.
After that, the only two things
I can think of are: Letty Cottin
Pogrebin's book Stories for Free Children, which grew out of a column of the same name in
and Once Upon a Heroine edited by Alison Cooper-Mullin and Jennifer Marmaduke
Coye. Though the latter two
don't focus on Fairy Tales,
they should have some information.
