Hidden between the lines in fairy tales exists the history of fantasy about women and sexuality. Because of its world-wide popularity and rags-to-riches feel, the “Cinderella” fairy tale best demonstrates this literary historicity. Jack Zipes, Cristina Bacchilega, and others have argued for the significance of examining fairy tales and their adaptations to see what the driving force of each narrative is and what this might represent. In this collection, we will examine 21st-century “Cinderella” adaptations that explore gender, sexuality, and fantasy in new and exciting ways.
