Disney rescues girls from princess culture

Disney rescues girls from princess culture | Child's Play, Education & Development | Scoop.it
Growing parental concern about young girls being inundated with princess culture is being addressed by Disney, the biggest global purveyor of princess characters on television and film.
MJ's insight:

Ummm, even though I played with dolls and dreamt of being a princess just like the Disney characters, one thing kept me grounded - my mum. I watched her work several jobs. There wasn't a thing she couldn't fix around the home. Independent, yes she was. Taught me how to do my own thing, how to be strong. We don't need Disney to 'rescue' our little girls. We need the power of strong female role models, telling us we can do anything we set our minds to.
