Pick a fairy tale from your childhood (For example – Beauty and the Beast, Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, The Three Little Pigs, Hansel and Gretel, Jack and the beanstalk, etc.) or a recent children’s movie.
In a 2 page paper, explore how fairy tales inform our understandings of our world in terms of cultural, religious, gender, race, and class differences. Think for instance of the characters’ voices, mannerisms, home lives, reactions to their surroundings, etc. Analyze how the story conveys inequality, including for example a comparison of how the relationships between characters help to convey the message that is set forth by the story. Then change ONE (only one) of the pivotal characteristics about one or more of the characters, such as the race, sexuality, class or gender, and re-write the story including this demographic change.
How does this affect the story (and it will)? How are the other characters affected by this change? How does this change the message and worldview that the story is perpetuating?
