*Limited to 25 participants.
Fairytales have a profound effect because they include archetypes that influence our thoughts, behaviors, and emotions. These beloved stories, however, have many hidden messages. Author, Anne Beall, analyzed hundreds of fairy tales and discovered significant findings such as:
- Male characters have more agency and power than female characters.
- Men marry up based on their acts of bravery, whereas women marry up based on their appearance.
- Powerful male characters are good whereas powerful females are often evil.
- Male characters are often rewarded for breaking the rules, whereas females are harshly punished.
She found many parallels in modern life. The result is that women may feel powerless, may have unrealistic expectations of romantic relationships, may worry about breaking the rules, and may be overly sensitive to the judgements of others. We will discuss how women can look at their lives differently by writing a new fairy tale where they are the heroine of their story.
