Feminism is the attempt to adapt Beauty and the Beast

 

As a classic fairy tale, Beauty and the Beast has a long history and various versions. The Disney’s film adaptation of Beauty and the Beast inherits the tradition as well as reverse it. As the film has reached quite a large audience since its release in 1991, it serves as an excellent popular culture text to analyze the feminist elements.

In this modern adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, patriarchy, male dominance and stereotypes are seen almost everywhere. For instance, at the very beginning of the movie, a baker appeared on the screen and was shouting at his wife with no mercy, portraying a woman’s dependence on men. The same baker also showed his disapproval for the heroin’s hobby of reading and emphasized the importance of his business. He is clearly infiltrated with the idea that innocence is the virtue for women. Later, the image of the triplet is a typical example of “airhead” stereotyping of women, conveying the message that women are incompetent and uncreative while men are dominant. Similar examples can be found in the heroin’s father and suitor.

In addition, we can deduce a very negative message conveyed in the movie by looking at the image of the heroin, who is the most beautiful woman in the town. That is to say, a woman has to be thin and beautiful before she is loved by men, and her value lie in how men judge her instead of something like self-realization, which is the pursuit of some feminists. This message apparently objectifies the women and it is only when women become objects and commodities, they can “belong to” and “be consumed by” men. This commodification of women is, actually, not uncommon in society when it is always ten times harder for women to be “successful” than men, for most women have to be attractive before they become successful in a man-dominated society.

Admittedly, in this modern adaptation, there are also some phanerous attempts to break the traditional gender stereotypes. The portrayal of the heroin, Belle, is a case in point. Unlike the traditional stereotyped women around her, Belle is a family centered girl who likes to read and wishes to go out for adventures. A woman like this is bound to possess an independent mind, make her own decisions and take the initiative. So she refuses the advance of Gaston, a very strong, handsome, masculine yet shallow man. In a way, she is looking for A Room of One’s Own like Virginia Woolf. This feminist consciousness may be inspired by liberal feminism, or a “can do” approach. Of course, this “can do” approach dwarfed when compared with the “can do” approach employed in the Maoist era, that “women hold up half the sky”, when women took on almost all responsibilities of men irrespective of their physiological conditions.

While in portraying the hero of the movie, Disney tries to break the man stereotype. The beast is described as a character that wins nobody’s favor. He is mean, ugly and has a very bad temper. However, unlike other male characters in the movie, the beast shows respect for women, which is very rare in that age. When he falls in love with Belle, he is willing to change for her and becomes a loving and caring beast. Their romantic relationship in a way breaks the stereotype of handsome as male lead. Yet still later, the beast is changed back into a handsome man that he once was. So in the end the stereotype of handsome prince is restored, leaving the attempt half done.

Also, Belle’s romantic relationship with the Beast is enlightened by feminism. Initially, the beast attempts to lock Belle in a room to impose a sense of domination and strength on her, which can be interpreted as a representation of an unequal relationship. However, things changed towards the middle of the story. The Beast realizes that confinement and coercion is a far cry from wining her love, so he gives her freedom. This liberation of women is what millions and generations of women are in search of and it is finally realized, though figuratively.

In all, the Disney ’s Film Adaptation of Beauty and the Beast made some visible efforts to show its feminist consciousness, and try to free women from stereotypes and man dominance, with a not-so-satisfactory result.
