A young female blogger has created racially altered Disney princesses in an attempt to inspire thought about the role these icons play for young girls, especially those who are of color. Young women of color see few representations of themselves in the media. Without these role models to aspire towards, it can become hard to imagine how one fits into broader society growing up.

Disney princesses have become a major part of North American culture. They play a large role in defining what the perfect woman is -- beautiful, and in need of a prince to save her. Culture critics are engaged in a debate over how these symbols affect young girls' self-esteem and conceptions of gender roles.

A thought-provoking project that is a step in the right direction, these race re-imagined princesses are progressive and enlightening. Stats for Race Re-imagined Damsels Trending: Older & Popular
