Get to know me meme » [1/5] favorite female characters: Charlotte La Bouff
Listen up, yo. People really don’t give Charlotte enough credit. She’s a spoiled, privileged, white southern lady. Not gonna lie, I assumed she was going to be a huge bitch the first time I saw her. But NO. This girl uses her privilege for good. She PAYS Tiana for her work, she doesn’t just expect it from her (something very common for the time and location of this movie). She also stands up for herself (another uncommon characteristic for women at the time). Travis wants to dance; she’s not interested and she lets him know it. She’s not apologetic, but gets right to the point. And, on top of everything else, she gives it her all to make sure Tiana gets her happily ever after, even if that means Charlotte won’t. Not only is she a strong young woman, she’s also an amazing friend.
I love the women of this film so much. Disney really pulled through here.
