In Defense of the Princess PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

In Defense of the Princess free pdf It's no secret that most girls, at some point, love all things princess: the poofy dresses, the plastic tiaras, the color pink. Even grown-up women can't get enough of royal weddings and royal gossip. Yet critics claim the princess dream sets little girls up to be weak and submissive, and allows grown women to indulge in fantasies of rescue rather than hard work and self-reliance. Enter Jerramy Fine -- an unabashed feminist who is proud of her life-long princess obsession and more than happy to defend it. Through her amusing life story and in-depth research, Fine makes it clear that feminine doesn't mean weak, pink doesn't mean inferior, and girliness is not incompatible with ambition. From 9th century Cinderella to modern-day Frozen, from Princess Diana to Kate Middleton, from Wonder Woman to Princess Leia, Fine valiantly assures us that princesses have always been about power, not passivity. And those who love them can still be confident, intelligent women. Provocative, insightful, but also witty and personal, In Defense of the Princess empowers girls, women, and parents to dream of happily ever after without any guilt or shame.

About Jerramy Fine

Jerramy Fine was raised in rural Colorado, where her hippie parents hoped and prayed she would outgrow her princess obsession. But she never did. Instead, she moved to England to seek out a more royal life. Her childhood quest to become a princess is detailed in her hilarious memoir Someday My Prince Will Come. Fine studied political science at the University of Rochester and social science at the London School of Economics. She lives in London.
