Between petticoats and paper bags – What’s wrong with Cinderella

Filed under: Across the Universe — Chinmayi @ 1:38 pm

Nice piece in the New York Times…about the imagery for little girls – the old princess image, the new ‘hot chick image’ and how much of a difference all of it really makes.

There had to be a middle ground between compliant and defiant, between petticoats and paper bags.



  1. I need to read a bit slower, I though you wrote
    “about imagenary little girls”
    I was wondering “Who is editing the Times these days?”

  2. That is funny! Hmm…if Lewis Carrol edited the Times now…
