I agree with The Little Mermaid’s group thesis that “the movie breaks the dominant narrative that women should be submissive by listening and taking advice from the men in their life.” Ariel defied everyone’s expectations by going off to do what she wanted. She didn’t let people tell her what to do. The thesis really goes into depth about her struggles and triumphs.
One thought on “The Little Mermaid’s Thesis”
I agree with your thesis and the movie does break and also reinforce stereotypes about how a woman should live her life.
