Some people claim that the story is just a throwback of a sexist fairy tale. However, there are others who believe that it represents a modern age woman who tackles all the difficulties of her life bravely.

Even we strongly believe that this Disney princess represents the modern age woman. She is more than just a beautiful face. Bella is a true epitome of beauty with brains. She is an inventor who invents a washing machine for herself so that she can devote her time to books reading. She is a role model for every one of us. Yet we acknowledge her for her beauty and not for her brain. Emma Watson has essayed the role of Bella in the remake of the movie. She has done justice to the role. This movie idolizes a strong woman and has indirectly taught us many leadership lessons through this fairy tale. Here are the leadership lessons that one can learn from this remake of ‘Beauty and the Beast’.

Give everyone a chance

Bella is a kind of that person in the workplace who helps other people to grow, is never dismissive and talks to everyone at the workplace.

A multi -tasker modern age woman

As the beast was recuperating, she has to take care of him. But that’s not all that she does. Besides taking care of him, she performs other chores also. She is similar to a modern working woman who goes to the office, takes care of their parents, spouse and children.

Dress for comfort

Updating her character to 2017, she has ditched corsets and high heels. Instead, she dresses for utility and comfort.

Be kind to everyone

Be it a servant or her colleagues, she never looks upon anyone. She is kind to everyone and considers everyone equal to herself.

Bella alone sets off to rescue her father

Despite knowing all the danger she can face, she sets off alone to rescue her father. She is decisive and takes action on things which can affect her future. She represents a modern woman who is not afraid of dangers in their life and is ready to face them bravely.

Bella is brave enough to fight off the wolves

When she sets off to the forest she was aware of the fact that the path to reach his father isn’t going to be an easy one. However, well aware of it, she went on to rescue her father. As expected, she has to face wolves and she fought with them. This can be seen as the modern working woman’s daily fight to get her equal rights at her workplace.

Despite all the criticism, if you look closely to Bella she is an epitome of a modern working woman
