Feminist claims Sleeping Beauty has inappropriate sexual message, by Nicola Woolcock.
The story of Sleeping Beauty, the princess condemned to slumber for 100 years who can be woken only by a kiss from a handsome prince, has entranced generations of young children.
One mother, however, says that the fairytale is not so innocent and has called for it to be removed from the curriculum at her son’s school because it has an inappropriate sexual message.
Inspired by the #MeToo campaign against sexual harassment, Sarah Hall said that the story promoted unacceptable behaviour because the prince had not sought consent for the kiss.
Let her sleep forever then.
