"Pretty as a Princess? Appearance Based and Personality Features of Disney Princesses"

 Sarah Coyne

In this study, we have examined how Disney Princesses are portrayed in the media, with specific focus on appearance related talk and sex role stereotyped behaviors. We have also analyzed how Disney Princesses are portrayed in merchandizing (at the Disney Store). This study provides an excellent jumping off point for future research on exposure to Disney Princess related media and merchandise.
