Women Artists can Make a Real Difference

I found this TED Talk from Brenda Chapman, a writer and animation director at Disney, and the creative force behind the wonderful, feminist film Brave (yes, it’s Disney, but it’s a very feminist and empowering message for girls and women).  She talks about what made her a feminist, and her own love of the classic Disney Princesses, which led her eventually to create Merida, the first truly independent Princess in the Disney catalog.


I hope you enjoy her talk as much as I did.

  1. Wow, that was awesome. I like that she ended with the starfish story, which I also have heard. And the mom working two jobs while the dad lounges. Hmmm. Not a rare story…

  2. No Brenda, it is a common story. Women still need equality. Hugs, Barbara

  3. I had seen this one before, it is worth listening too more than once. Thank you for reminding me.
