Artist's Description

As Daphne Blake said “I’ve had it with this damsel in distress thing!”

ink drawing on 9″×11″ sketchbook paper
Another princess that doesnt really need to be rescued.

The subject of the damsel in distress, or persecuted maiden, is a classic theme in world literature, art, and film. She is usually a beautiful young woman placed in a dire predicament by a villain or a monster and who requires a hero to dash to her rescue. She has become a stock character of fiction, particularly of melodrama.

The helplessness of the damsel in distress, who can be portrayed as foolish and ineffectual to the point of naïvety, along with her need for others (mostly men) to rescue her, has made the stereotype the target of feminist criticism.
