ABSTRACT. The article proposes a postmodern approach to the female character in fairy tales, with a focus on Cinder and Cinderella, by emphasizing the inversion of gender roles. Starting from universally valid social concepts such as social stratification, religious values, femininity, and stigmatization, the analysis narrows focusing on the way in which gender identity and stereotypes have manifested in postmodern literature.
