Fairytales & real life situations

I’ve been thinking about portraying fairy tales characters in modern day situations like Dina Goldstein did in her ‘Fallen Princesses’ series. However, I am specifically looking at how I can relate the tales to high profile abduction cases from the last few years.

Many fairy tales have undertones of abduction, child abuse, murder and rape. Below are a few of them…

Rapunzel: Is stolen from her parents and kept in a tower.

Cinderella: Locked away and forced to do chores.

Sleeping Beauty: She was raped by the King.

Hansel & Gretel: Abandoned by their parents and lured by the witch to her house.
