The Strong Man

December 2, 2018

Folk were asking me this weekend where I get the inspiration for my feminist fairy tales. This is a question I love answering, firstly because some of the answers are hilarious (The Weaver originated in a particularly vivid dream where Henry VIII saved me from a giant spider), and secondly because some of them give me an excuse to share material that I believe every person in the world should see. 

 

The Strong Man is one of my favourite stories from the book, where a bit of an underwhelming character from one of the other fairy tales gets the chance to redeem himself as a decent man. The inspiration for this story came from a wonderful TED talk that Justin Baldoni gave earlier this year. You can check it out here:
