Strong Female Role Models in the Disney Movies ...


When we think about Disney’s female role models our mind inevitably turns to the princesses and eponymous heroines. But there are so many other really strong female characters that fly under the radar. Here are some of my favorites. I bet they jog a “oh yeah, she’s great” response in you!

1. Nala (the Lion King)

Nala (the Lion King)

Come on, you know it, I know it, we all know it, if Nala had not decided to venture into the desert to find adult Simba, then Scar would have been able to take over the entire animal kingdom and The Lion King would have had a very different ending! The young lioness’s courage and conviction is the true turning point in the entire film.
