We’re tired of Cinderella
Losing her shoe,
She does not have to be home early
Or wear only blue.
Let’s tell her to fight against the injustice
Her step-mother’s doing since birth,
And thank the fairy godmother
To make her realize her own worth.
Can someone tell Snow White
Not to trust all people,
Don't enter into a house of strangers
Or just eat a poisoned apple.
Also, tell her stepmom
That she’s pretty too
She doesn’t need the mirror’s assurance
And ‘fairness is beauty’ is just a taboo.
Listen Rapunzel, you’re always gorgeous
And let us all make it clear-
Neither should long hair set beauty standards
Nor should short hair mean that it’s hideous.
Let us tell her kidnapper Mother Gothel,
To get off that insecurity
Tell her aging is natural,
Wrinkles cannot ever fade your beauty.
They are more than just bedtime stories
They all teach a lesson
Quite hidden between beauty standards
And unnoticed among gender stereotypes.
We have had enough fantasies
It is time to learn from these fairy tales
And empower many more females!
