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?


17: Sleeping Beauty But Worse

This week, Rachael shares a version of a classic story that’s so much worse than you remember it. That’s right, it’s “Sun, Moon, and Talia””, now with more 100% rape, infidelity, and cannibalism than the “Sleeping Beauty” you know!
