Od milczącej do rewolucjonistki. Księżniczki Disneya i Katniss Everdeen jako aktywne nastolatki


This article attempts to establish the definition and boundaries of an active teenage girl – a heroine of popular culture referring to the real world, who does her best to act for change. Based on Campbell’s monomyth and its feminist reinterpretation, the text finds familiar yet innovative narrative solutions that situate the female protagonist in dystopian unreality. The author also briefly refers to contemporary Disney princess archetypes and juxtaposes them with the heroine of one of the most popular dystopian series for young adults.
