A Real Heroine
  • Some say that Princess Diana lived a fairy tale.
    But upon examining her life events and obstacles,
    one can see that Diana was not only a real
    heroine, but also, a real person. Princess Diana
    was a very human heroine in a sense. She
    personifies how a woman should strive to be.

flowers from a young patient, during her visit to
Northwick Park Hospital, London, 1997
  • Princess Diana was best known for her charitable
    work. She dedicated a lot of time to the
    homeless, the disabled, people with HIV/AIDS, and
    especially children. One of the reasons that
    Princess Dianas charity work is so special is
    because she truly believed in participating in
    helping, not just giving money. The Princess
    fought for so many different causes that one can
    really tell how much she cared for humanity in
    general and how she sincerely wanted to end
    suffering wherever it occurred. Princess Diana
    even said, I understand people's suffering,
    people's pain, more than you will every know

The Princess of Wales visited Angola in January
1997 to see the work of the Red Cross in helping
mine victims. Here she wears protective headgear

  • The year before she died, Princess Diana
    campaigned for a ban on the manufacture and use
    of landmines. The Princesss will to help these
    landmine workers demonstrates how directly
    connected she was to the people. She cared about
    them enough to make sure she was involved enough
    to personally protest what she thought to be
    wrong. Time magazine writes, First she became
    the patron saint of victims, the sick, the
    discriminated against, the homeless

Everyone needs to be valued. Everyone has the
potential to give something back....Princess
  • Heroines are allowed to make mistakes too.
    Dianas adulterous marriage brought her down to
    the level of any other ordinary person. The
    Princess admitted to having her bouts with
    depression, self-mutilation, and bulimia. This
    allows the public, especially women to empathize
    with the way she was feeling. Dianas
    demonstration of how to overcome an obstacle and
    the way she turned a helpless life into one of
    aiding others shows why people look up to her and
    idealize her.

I will fight for my children on any level so
they can reach their potential as human beings
and in their public duties.... Princess
  • Because Diana is such a realistic woman, she
    inspires other women to live up to their
    potential. She cares for all children, no matter
    what. She is like a universal mother. Her love
    for children was evident in her social work and
    also in her own family life. Diana placed much
    value on the family unit. Princess Diana stresses
    how much she values what families think of her
    and how much she appreciates families.
    Motherhood is such a large part of who women are.
    Thus, Princess Dianas ability to be a good
    mother makes her a good heroine.

A Sense of Beauty
  • Along with her motherly qualities and charitable
    inclinations, Diana retained and perfected her
    feminine charm and eloquence. Her sense of style
    and charm made her a role model. Princess Diana
    further used her fashion sense and femininity to
    once again help the public. She auctioned off her
    most famous dresses to the public to help raise
    money for charities she worked for. This is a
    wonderful demonstration of using ones femininity
    for the public good.

A Funeral Of A Heroine
  • Dianas funeral, a world wide event, demonstrated
    exactly how powerful and moving she was as a
    heroine. She was followed by many mourners that
    had been inspired by her warmth, intelligence,
    grace, and care for humanity. Her death had such
    a wide impact on not just England, but the world,
    that one must admit what a motivational heroine
    she was and will continue to be. Her death in
    some ways seems to inspire people even more than
    her work while she was alive.

The Power of A Woman
  • Princess Diana seems as if she used her charm,
    beauty, eloquence, and warmth for benevolent
    purposes. She is the ideal female. She uses her
    attributes that one can only attribute to being a
    woman for good. She has neither too little nor
    too much sex appeal. She knows how to act
    appropriately in public. Her coolness and
    calmness in any situation inspire other me to be
    pulled together in public. Not that Diana
    believed in putting on appearances that were not
    true, but she always showed a face to the world
    that was presentable and real. Her grace and
    loveliness show what women are really capable of.
