Patriarchy-smashing princess

You should know about Grumpy Princess, the alter ego of a friend from my Art Monastery days who studied musical theater, circus arts, and, apparently, feminism, before becoming a professional kids’ party entertainer (and princess). Grumpy Princess started as a series of photos she’d take on the way to her gigs, all dressed up and making pissed off faces, then labeled “Disgruntled Princess.”

Now, the character has evolved into the star of a web series dismantling the misogyny – and absurdity – of the princess myth.

Check out videos like the one below.
