Once upon a time, there lived a beautiful hallowed princess named Snow White. Her father had died when she was a young girl and her step mother raised her alone. One day when Snow White was outside playing with the animals while singing songs, a prince riding nearby heard her angelic voice coming from the palace and was shook. He couldn’t help but gasp when he saw how beautiful she was, and thought for a moment about joining her in song. He began to approach the palace walls. He then realized that this was not his property, so he got on his steed and rode off. The haughty Queen saw Snow White’s timid admirer from her castle, and was seething with jealousy.
“Mirror mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?” asked the Queen.

She ordered her Huntsman to find Snow White and kill her. The Huntsman followed Snow White into the woods one day, and he almost got to her until she turned around and saw him. The naive Huntsman explained to Snow White that the Queen had ordered him to kill her because she was so beautiful.
“Why would you allow her to order you around and treat you like property? You are human! Everyone should be treated equally”, exclaimed Snow White.
“You know what, you’re right. I should be treated with more respect than this. Besides, I was reluctant to hurt a woman anyway. Now go, run as far away as you can” warned the

After what seemed like forever, Snow White took the apple and she thanked the lady. When the old woman had asked Snow to take a bite of the apple is where Snow White drew the line at. She became wary of the lady’s intentions and regretted opening the door in the first place.
“I don’t feel comfortable with what you’re asking me to do!” Snow White announced timidly.
“One little bite won’t hurt dear.” the woman insisted.
“No means no, please respect my decision.” declared Snow while shutting the door on the old hag. She knew a thing or two about sanitizing produce before eating, so she took the apple to the sink to wash it. But that wasn’t enough to wash away all of the poison from the apple’s outer rind. After she had gone to take a generous bite out of said apple, she dropped to the floor and fell into a deep sleep. The evil queen left without compunction.
The dwarves came back from work to find their beloved princess passed out on the dirty cottage ground. They had heard of this Queen’s apple before, and they knew that the only way to wake her up was true love’s kiss. They placed her in a beautiful glass coffin and

    In the first scene, the stepmother attempts to have a Snow-White slain as a Queen, as exemplified by how she orders a huntsman to carry out the deed. In turn this illustrates the relationship as meaningless for the Queen. However, this is a stark contrast to the relationship portrayed in the second scene, as the Queen attempts to slay Snow-White in the form of a mother. To elaborate on the previous point, we must first consider how Snow-White feels about her stepmother (which is revealed by the passage), “Snow-White looked out and said, "Go on your way. I am not allowed to let anyone in."…

    Instead, because the queen had forgotten to wish for beauty, Snow was the most hideous princess of her time. Luckily, some may say, her mother never got to see what her wish had come to, as she died shortly after childbirth. The king, dejected after his beloved wife’s death, withdrew to his quarters, leaving young Snow to entertain herself. It was a difficult adjustment, then, when her father remarried after seven years and a domineering stepmother moved in. In those times, there was an abundance of cruel peasants and servants, but the worst offender in the kingdom was Snow White 's stepmother, Linda.…

    One of them said, “I think that Snow White is very pitiful princess. She’s just only fourteen and she has to leave her castle because her own beauty is a threat to another woman, so she will be killed.

That’s why she’s alive with a prince’s kiss.” It makes me think that if Snow White is not pretty at all, she may be in her glass coffin until now.…
