National Princess Day

For decades, nay centuries, little girls have been encouraged to dream of and dress up as little princesses. It was extremely unrealistic that any of them would ever meet a prince, let alone live a storybook life. Along the way it taught them to give up agency and wait to be rescued. Various animation houses have tried to introduce a new model of a princess. Maybe instead of trying to reframe what a princess is, it is time to change our approach to raise up our daughters as full fledged members of society, not a fairy tale fantasy.
