In the critique Cinderella: Not So Morally Superior, Elisabeth Panttaja critiques a version of a Cinderella story, Ashputtle, by Jakob and Wilelm Grimm. Panttaja goes in depth about hidden details of Ashputtle and how Ashputtle is not actually motherless, and the real mother is behind all the magic. Even though Panttaja states that Ashputtle’s real mother is violent and evil, she is actually a sweet, godmother like person. Panttaja argues that even though Ashputtle does not have a real living mother, the hazel branch, given to her by her father that she planted at her mother’s grave, which grows into a tree, acts as her mother by taking care of Ashputtle (Panttaja 659). The tree grants Ashputtle’s every wish; from her clothes to helping out with chores.
Lieberman’s point is that fairy tales make beauty the basis for which reward is given, not intelligence, work ethic, or anything else a radical feminist would see as an asset. Lieberman also stresses that in popular fairy tales, beauty is associated with being kind and well-tempered whereas ugliness is associated with being ill-tempered and often jealous. This can be easily shown in one of the most popular fairy tales of all—Cinderella. In this, Lieberman argues, Cinderella is oppressed by her cruel, ugly stepsisters and stepmother who force the kind, beautiful girl to do all the chores in the house. Cinderella ends up getting the prize (marriage to the prince) based on looks alone.

The Princess Paradox Critique Alexandra Heinrich May 2012 English 120 In the article “The Princess Paradox” By James Poniewozik the author explains how “modern day” Cinderella stories have came a long way from what they once were. Although, no matter how hard we try, the Cinderella story will always end the same and our young girls will always want to be a princess, no matter how the princess is portrayed in the fairy tail.

Panttaja believes Cinderella’s mother has a main role in the story, and that Cinderella is a lying, deceiving, and serpentine character. In almost every Cinderella story, Cinderella is thought to be completely absent. However, according to Panttaja, her mother plays a key role in Cinderella’s future, and in the story’s moral. Although Cinderella’s mother seems to be dead, it is she who holds the most power within the
