I came across this and had to share. As my three-year old niece is currently in a princess-obsessed phase, I am interested in not only her obsession with princesses, but also potentially using her interest as a tool to open her eyes to some real life female role models. Below is a teaser quote from the artist. Enjoy!
“Fiction is the lens through which young children first perceive role models, so we have a responsibility to provide them with a diverse and eclectic selection of female archetypes. Now, I’m not even saying that girls shouldn’t have princesses in their lives, the archetype in and of itself is not innately wrong, but there should be more options to choose from. So that was my intent, to demonstrate how ridiculous it is to paint an entire gender of heroes with one superficial brush.
