To Undisney the Girl-Child by Wilda Morris Who will help this girl-child learn itís not good to eat the poison apple or hope a prince will kiss her awake? Who will tell her the beast is as likely to remain beastly as to soften into a prince at her touch? Why do we buy her tiaras so she dreams of palaces and ladies-in-waiting ready to do all she bids never explaining how a king picks husbands for his daughters according to his royal whim and the prince may be unfaithful but have her beheaded if she finds true love unbedded from him? A princess is always a pawn in the games of powerful men. How will this girl-child learn she can live by her own wit and wisdom or find a hard-working man who wonít keep her in thralldom?
