Disney's Villains: Women Edition

Updated on June 10, 2015

I have a B.A. in English with a minor in Gender and Sexuality Studies. I've been a Goth since age fourteen, and a Pagan since age fifteen.

Female Disney villains are older, single, self-absorbed, have a dramatic appearance, and evil. The subliminal message is that females should marry a prince while they're still young or they will wind up alone and miserable. The more perky your attitude and the less self-esteem you have the more likely you are to find a man that can give you a perfect ending to your life story. After all, being self-reliant makes you evil, and unloveable. This will lead you to obsess over younger women until you're able to satisfy your evil needs by attempting to ruin their lives.
