Fractured Fairytales

Write a modern day Cinderella story where Cinderella is actually a self-made successful business woman who doesn’t need a man to make her life better.

This story can flip the concept of a traditional damsel in distress saving herself. Has she avoided connections to focus on her work, does the glass slipper have a symbolic meaning in this story? What unique, modern day version of a fairy godmother could she encounter? There’s room to explore themes like independence, femininity, and empowerment, as well as examining traditional gender roles and stereotypes.
