Fairy tale heroines

This is a mini-essay about traditional fairy tales with strong female lead characters. While fairy tales are sometimes seen as archetypical stories of active men winning passive women through trials, there are also stories where the protagonist is female. I list a number of folk tales like Lurvehette, Herremannsbruden, Manndattera og kjerringdattera and Prinsessa som gikk til jordas hjerte as well as translated ones like the Chezck Salt framom alt.
