Feminist Folklore

29 EpisodesProduced by Skylark MediaWebsite

Feminist Folklore examines fairy tales, myths, and legends from around the world through a feminist lens, asking the question: how do the stories we tell about girls and women inform our attitudes about gender, sexuality, and more?


18: Who's The Vainest Of Them All?

This week, Carlea shares a story you know and love: Snow White! It's got all the murderous jealousy and necrophilia you remember, plus child brides and poison hair accessories. Ahh, a true classic! Thanks, patriarchal beauty standards!

Content Warning: Attempted murder, attempted cannibalism, child marriage, torture
