This study, published by the Washington Post, is not groundbreaking, but it does highlight a couple interesting things that I noticed in my own Disney year — such as the fact that the older Disney princess movies actually had much more equal gender representation than the ones I grew up loving in the Renaissance era, despite the Renaissance boasting “stronger” princesses.
