Abstract

The American feminist movement has experienced three waves of movement since its outbreak in the mid-19th century. Its influence has continued to impact the norms of patriarchal society and has had a huge impact on the development of the film industry. Disney, one of the giants of the animation world, produced a series of films portraying princesses. As a mirror of the social and contemporary context, Disney reflected the image of women in different periods of the feminist movement through its animated films. This paper will analyse the representative Disney princess animations during the three waves through an observational method in the context of the feminist movement in the United States, in an attempt to construct the changes in the image of Disney princesses from the 20th to the 21st century, and thus explore the awakening and development of women’s consciousness.
