Women in Fairy Tales
Free exhibition – Kind Girls, Evil Sisters & Wicked Witches: Women in Fairy Tales
From the helpless beauty to the evil stepmother, gender roles in fairy tales have traditionally played upon stereotypes which have evolved since the tales were first written. This free exhibition explores and challenges gender stereotypes that lie in five key fairy tales: Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Hansel & Gretel, Cinderella and Snow White.
