Amy Davis seeks to place Disney films-already much examined-in the wider context of American popular culture, studying female human characters in animated features from the 1930s to 2005. A daunting project in scale, it is unique in its aim to cover all female human characters, and inevitably some compromises are made.

In Good Girls and Wicked Witches, Amy M. Davis re-examines the notion that Disney heroines are rewarded for passivity. Davis proceeds from the assumption that, in their representations of femininity, Disney films both reflected and helped shape the attitudes of the wider society, both at the time of their first release and subsequently. Analyzing the construction of (mainly human) female characters in the animated films of the Walt Disney Studio between 1937 and 2001, she attempts to establish the extent to which these characterizations were shaped by wider popular stereotypes. Davis argues that it is within the most constructed of all moving images of the female form―the heroine of the animated film―that the most telling aspects of Woman as the subject of Hollywood iconography and cultural ideas of American womanhood are to be found.

Absolutely excellent book! I have used it numerous times for projects and meetings. Wonderful analysis of characters and character types from an educational and analytical standpoint. This author does not let bias get in the way. Highly recommended for anyone researching or interested in the feminine archetypes of Disney women!

It's very easy to criticize Disney's portrayals of women over the years. In fact, they do not fit with the current cultural idea of a motivated, active, and very maternal woman. Others believe that Disney is so ingrained into our popular culture it should be immune from criticism.

The tone of this book feels sympathetic to Disney more so than many essays about this topic. It considers many factors that contribute to the portrayals. But it is also not entirely apologetic for these images.

The book is all by one person. Her sources are cited well within the page in a way that academics can easily understand and casual readers can easily ignore. The chapters are divided by time period.

The worst thing I can say about the book is that there should have been more in some places and less in others. Chapter 2 is a brief history of animation. I'm not entirely sure that the actions of other studios, especially ones that weren't making movies, is relevant to the topic. In addition, the book only talks about human characters as they appeared as main characters in animated movies. There is no discussion about the portrayals of female animals in movies like "The Lion King" or "Robin Hood," which I feel has a great diversity of female characters. I also feel that the lack of women in movies like "The Jungle Book" and "Winnie the Pooh" is worthy of discussion.

this book makes you look at disney in a different look and view. it ties so much together and how it is all explained out
and where it leads and how it goes. a very interesting book. one of those books that brings forth into so much detail and the history of various projects associated with the disney logo and beyond.

I wanted to give this book four stars as it is one of the few academic books published that provides a critical evaluation of Disney animation from a gender perspective, but there were a few issues I had with this book that made it difficult to do so. The writing is at times clunky, with unnecessary mistakes scattered throughout the book (including misprints as well the consistent misspelling of the character Phoebus's name from "The Hunchback of Notre Dame") which were both distracting and detracted from the reading experience.

While the author's analysis of films tended to be sympathetic towards the Disney Company, it is this sympathetic stance that makes "Good Girls" a more accessible read for those outside of the academic world. "Good Girls" provides readers with a very good introduction to gender analysis in film, as well as a comprehensive history of women in animation, film, and Disney. However, for those looking for a more in-depth, critical analysis of gender in Disney films, I would recommend picking up "From Mouse to Mermaid" instead.

If you think the ideal of American womanhood was established by Doris Day and other goody two shoes, then think again and read this enthralling exploration of the women in the Walt Disney films from Sleeping Beauty to Alice in Wonderland to the Little Mermaid and Pocahontas.
