Many of you may be planning to catch a movie with the family on Christmas day after filling up on ham, stuffing and pie. I have yet to check out The Princess and the Frog, which presents Disney’s first black princess, but I’ve heard rave reviews from pals who have viewed the film.
And… I really enjoyed myself. That’s because the themes of entrepreneurship and division of labor in the household were so crucial to the film it was kryptonite for any red-blooded feminist. The idea that men can and should play a role in food preparation and that women can own their own business while building viable, healthy relationships was so groundbreaking for a movie with the word “princess” in the title. For this, Disney deserves their props.
