My 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

Thanks 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 Ms. Magazine; 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. Happy researching
Amy
