Series of fairytales, where the leading roles are filled by princesses with a disability, cancer, or illness.
About this project
WHY THE BOOK?
Princessability is a series of stories developed with the intention to educate people in hopes of stopping discrimination against children with a disability, cancer or illness.
Fairytale stories, dolls, princesses and superheroes have always caught our attention, but for us there was something missing. we are brunette, and as brunettes we noticed the lack of dark skin, or dark haired princesses, heroes, etc.; So we decided to create them when we grew up. Other creators addressed the issues before we had gotten a chance, but this left us thinking, what other girls needed role models that were currently not being addressed.
While we were investigating other traits these role models were lacking, we came across the big umbrella of discrimination; so we decided to create a series of 14 fairytales, where the leading roles are filled by princesses with a different disability, cancer, or illness in hopes to create an easier way for children to understand and sensitize.
WHAT WE WANT TO ACHIEVE
Even though these are fantasy books and magic is used, it is not solely magic these princesses depend on, but their “PRINCESSABILITY”. The way goals and obstacles are achieved are fashioned after the methods these girls must use in everyday life.
That is why our slogan is:
“The disability is not the absence of an ability, but the creativity in their other abilities”.
We aim to achieve 2 main goals:
1.To educate and sensitize in a different more creative manner, that is simpler for children to understand.
2.Identify and inspire the girls in the real world, as well as the community around them. Also giving them a princess to identify with.
