Inspirational People
For many young women, the only fairy-tales they know are the ones that have been retold by Walt Disney studios.

Once upon a time, these stories of magical transformation were meant for young women as they grew away from their childhood and towards adulthood. They were told by their mothers and grandmothers and the wise women of their clan as they spun and wove and stirred their pots and made their potions. The heroines of these old tales set out on a difficult road of trails to discover their true destiny. And, contrary to popular opinion, marrying a prince was not the only goal.

The ancient tales of wonder and adventure are about learning to be strong, brave, kind and true-hearted, and trusting in yourself to change the world for the better. These are not your usual passive princesses waiting forlornly for their prince to come...

The brave young women from tales of yore in Vasilisa the wise and other Tales of Brave Young Women will transform the way you think about fairy tales

You think you know her story. You’ve read the Brothers Grimm, you’ve watched the Disney cartoons, and you cheered as these virtuous women lived happily ever after. But real princesses didn't always get happy endings. Sure, plenty were graceful and benevolent leaders, but just as many were ruthless in their quest for power—and all of them had skeletons rattling in their royal closets. Princess Stephanie von Hohenlohe was a Nazi spy. Empress Elisabeth of the Austro-Hungarian empire slept wearing a mask of raw veal. Princess Olga of Kiev slaughtered her way to sainthood while Princess Lakshmibai waged war on the battlefield, charging into combat with her toddler son strapped to her back. Princesses Behaving Badly offers true tales of all these princesses and dozens more in a fascinating read that's perfect for history buffs, feminists, and anyone seeking a different kind of bedtime story.
