I honestly would LOVE to know what kind of job Cinderella would get if she ran away. Yep, I'm talking to you, pretty_angel92! Please, speak up! Like AudreyFreak said, do you guys forget they were NO women's shelters or abuse hotlines back then? Women were nearly powerless.Stop judging her as a modern woman-she is NOT MODERN. You know someone who does something very similar to Cinderella? ALADDIN. His situation was just as tough as Cinderella's, maybe slightly easier. But while EVERYONE complains about Cinderella not getting a job, Aladdin gets NO COMPLAINTS about that AT ALL. Is it because he's a man? Because if it is, it's just plain SEXIST and SHALLOW.
Same with Tiana. As rhythmicmagic has said, she apparently "gives up her dream for a man". THAT IS BULLSH*T.
"You want someone who gives up a dream for a lover? HERCULES! He completely turns his back on his dream of life on Olympus to be with Meg. Tiana got her dream of her restaurant in the end, Hercules never got his. He even says “A life without Meg, even an immortal life, wouldn’t be worth living.” Tiana never says her life would be worthless without her relationship with Naveen. Why does no one complain about Hercules, when he gave up more than Tiana ever did and never had any hope of ever being able to get his dream again? Because he is a man? This is a double standard, I tell you, as sexist as any other!"
