Feminist Fairy Tales by Barbara Walker

256 pps.

Barbara Walker retells some of the most beloved fairy tales ever told from a feminist perspective. Many of her retellings are of particular interest to anyone interested in Pagan and Wiccan symbols, as they feature frequently in her her new stories. While not perfect by any means (with a lack of diversity and one story that was startlingly transphobic in nature), it's a good starting point for anyone interested in reading about women in fairy tales.
