They have just used History, current norms and traditions to shape their characters -use the concept of Imagination vs. Reality 1.)Imagination ( Princesses, Princes, Castles, Fairies) 11.) Reality (Women struggling to have a voice and work outside the home) - Only 24.3% of women worked outside the home in 1930’s -Following norms of the timeThursday, December 6, 12
