The “Army of Princesses”

http://www.npr.org/2011/02/05/133471639/saving-our-daughters-from-an-army-of-princesses

This is an NPR report where author Peggy Orenstein reads excerpts from her new book: Cinderella Ate my Daughter. My CentreTerm class did a short unit on feminism and Disney princesses. I also happen to have a two-year-old daughter who is obsessed with The Little Mermaid and Snow White and asks for an “Ariel” story every night before going to bed. Like Orenstein, I sometimes question the merit of the Disney Princess culture. Thus, I found this story fascinating.
