I Respect These Female Heroes So Much More With Tiny Waists And Sparkly Dresses! LOL J/K.

There's a place for princesses, and there's a place for real, seriously ass-kicking women who are standing up to the world's problems. Example: The thing about Malala as a princess? She didn't get locked in a tall tower or eat a poison apple — the Taliban shot her in the head. She doesn't need a gown or a tiara to create her place in history, and we need to be teaching that to little girls.

Still not sure what the artist is doing here? Scroll all the way down for a great quote about it straight from him.
About:
ORIGINALS: By the superbly talented — and almost scary-smart — UK-based cartoonist and illustrator David Trumble. (Man, I hate it when people are both younger and smarter than me.) These images are published with his permission, of course. Love his satirical princesses? You can buy them (and more of his colorful, imaginative, often-subversive artwork) as prints on Society6.
