  10. 10. themes<br />Based on our own cultural knowledge of Cinderella, we decided to use Walt Disney’s version in order to most accurately assess the most prevalent themes.<br />Classic elements of the Cinderella tale include sibling rivalry, as well as the conflict between females in general, good triumphing evil, and the classic role of the chivalrous male figure.<br />
  11. 11. Sibling/ Female rivalry 1<br />Stepmother and stepsisters are seen as ugly/bitter.<br />They are jealous of Cinderella and her natural beauty.<br />Makes Cinderella do the "dirty" house work while they get to stay clean and "beautiful.”<br />
  12. 12. Sibling/ Female rivalry 2<br />The stepmother forbids Cinderella from going to the ball and letting anyone see her (especially Prince Charming).<br />Ruins her pretty dress. <br />Locks her up so she cannot try on the glass slipper.<br />Stepsisters also have some feud with each other.<br />In the end Cinderella, who does not possess the jealous/bitter qualities like her family, gets the happy ending.<br />
  13. 13. Good over evil 1<br />Cinderella is hard working, kind and good hearted.<br />The stepmother, along with her daughters, are "evil" and wish to defile Cinderella.<br />Despite their attitude towards her, Cinderella continues to remain a sweet girl throughout the story.<br />
