Beginning with the controversy sparked by Alison Lurie’s 1970 article on “Fairy Tale Liberation,” this essay reviews significant developments in feminist fairy-tale scholarship over the next thirty years, especially in North America and Europe. Charting these developments helps to document the movement toward a more complex and nuanced understanding of the relationship between the fairy tale and gender, provides a context for the essays that follow in this special issue, and suggests directions for future research. This critical survey concludes with a bibliography of feminist/gender-based scholarship.
