The feminist folktales in Sea Girl upend any notion that women are doomed to be sentimental, meek, or submissive. The heroines in these classic tales lead the reader through monstrous rivers and ogres' nests, all the while outsmarting desperate sharks and hungry tigers. They courageously save families and villages, and they always choose their own fate.
