WEEK 1: SNOW WHITE
Many people think Snow White has “no distinct personality” and “exists only to be victimized.” She has been accused of being “fairly one-dimensional” and “a bore.” All she does, the criticism goes, is get duped into eating a poison apple, fall asleep, and wait around for a man to come save the day.
So, is Snow White a gullible, passive damsel in distress? Or is there more to her than meets the eye?
