In defence of the princess

Critics claim the princess dream sets little girls up to be weak and submissive, and allows grown women to indulge in fantasies of rescue rather than hard work and self-reliance.

Enter Jerramy Fine - an unabashed feminist who is proud of her life-long princess obsession and more than happy to defend it. As she tells Ritula Shah, Jerramy makes it clear that feminine does not mean weak, pink does not mean inferior, and girliness is not incompatible with strength and ambition.
