Possible Essay Question

Question : How has gender representation changed over the years in Disney films?

Focusing on Sleeping Beauty vs Mulan

So I would include external factors at the time of creation e.g. sexism work environment and feminist milestones that occurred etc, also mention the original sources of the stories, and any relevant gender theories.

Some sources already.
