    Rapunzel, like most heroines, is isolated: a lone female in a man's world, without female companions. So I decided to give Rapunzel a sister.


    It is typical in traditional fairy tales for the female lead to be separated from other women. She is isolated, lonely and vulnerable and awaiting rescue by a man. In a patriarchal society, fairy tales often set women against other women, like the jealous step mother or an old hag. So in my feminist recreation I show Rapunzel with her sister, as they plot together to weave their own golden escape route in the form of a ropes made of hair.
