Images and Motifs in Children's Fairy Tales.
O'Connor, Pat
Educational Studies, v15 n2 p129-44 1989
Examines the stereotypical images of women in traditional fairy tales, arguing that these images contribute to females' negative self-concepts, and to limited definitions of the female role. Suggests that there are alternative fairy tales that may be used by parents and teachers in helping children read. (Author/LS)
