Flipping Their Fins for a Place to Stand: 19th- and 20th-Century Mermaids.
Leadbeater, Bonnie J.; Wilson, Gloria Lodato
Youth and Society, v24 n4 p466-86 Jun 1993
Juxtaposition of Hans Christian Andersen's "The Little Sea Maid" (1837) and Disney's home video "The Little Mermaid" (1989) illustrates how the adolescent princesses have evolved with changing views of women's roles. The mermaid of the twentieth century, part of the world of men, is still in a subservient role. (SLD)
