Disney Knows What Makes Women Really Angry

The best Disney depictions of human nature lately, I think, are the ones that show what makes women really really angry. And what do you think that is? It's not being bumped into second place in the 'who is the fairest of them all' stakes. It's being deceived into thinking that the man of your dreams is in love with you for ever and ever...

My conversation with Milin, I've realised, must start here. It's time now to start laying the groundwork that will see him growing up to speak out for equality. ,I want him to do more than his fair share in quashing gender inequalities. I want him to grow up championing the rights of men and women, girls and boys, no matter who they are and where they are from.

I am a grown up. I guess there is no escaping that now. And I've realised that although others may look at you as being a grown up it can take quite a long time to acknowledge it yourself. And potentially there is 'the moment' when you suddenly realise that it has happened.

I never imagined that I would be approached by the very company that turned the well-thumbed fairy tales of my youth into feature films - so when I was asked to design inspired headwear for Disney UK earlier this year, I was honoured.

A Toxic Kind of Love

Ekaterina Botziou

From a young age we are taught that forgiveness and acceptance is the key to happiness. But have these teachings been misconstrued to such an extent that we now have a warped view of what actually deserves forgiveness and acceptance? Do we now unconsciously gravitate towards destructive relationships, believing that without pain there can be no real passion?

Five Lessons to Be Learnt From Frozen

I've somehow managed to avoid writing about Frozen up until now. This is incredible considering how much of my life it seems to have taken up recently. Now of course Frozen has a moral message about the importance of family and love and blah blah blah. I'm not too interested by that part of it. So instead here are the really important messages I want my girls to take away from Frozen.

Disney Princesses: Role Models or Ridiculous?

Bethany Balkham | Posted 25.08.2014 | UK Universities & Education
Bethany Balkham

So it seems that Disney has moved with the times, as it is the more recent princesses that symbolise true female role models. Merida, a new princess from Brave, shows that Disney has tossed aside the snow-white, angelic style. Instead, the bushy, ginger-haired scruff ball, is a free-spirited and powerful girl...

I was out of the house like a flash after Stacey had gone. She was to spend the day at a first aid training course that would last until 5pm. This gave me nine hours to paint the biggest piece I'd ever attempted: 50ft long by 15ft tall, four characters and seven massive, crunchy letters. I quickly sketched out the outline before filling in the background, the letters and, lastly, added the final details to the characters. Easy.

All hail an internet crisis is upon us! If you are of the age of fourteen or below and a One Direction fan, the chances are that you're either crying in a corner somewhere right now, or you're busy tearing up your concert tickets to their next gig. My final guess is that you're recording a YouTube video whilst simultaneously doing the above.

OK, I wasn't expecting a tiny cartoon Andrea Dworkin to weave her way through the Enchanted Forest singing a catchy melodic ballad about the devastating effect of porn on society. But before people start saying this is a 'feminist' movie, it might be worth examining it closer.

She is now gracing front covers, has a child whose name is inspired by the points on a compass and is a product created and exploited by her own mother. I remember being so terrified introducing my first boyfriend to my parents, I am unsure when the (alleged) brokering of a deal regarding your daughter's sex tape became the norm.

I watched a trailer for a movie I didn't recognise at the weekend. It was for an animated movie about a daring, unstoppable thief having a series of misadventures. Right at the end of the trailer, we glimpsed the female character who would presumably be his love interest. It was for Disney's Tangled.
