The website Rejected Princesses focuses on an underrepresented part of history and uses a comic-style format:
“”Well-behaved women seldom make history. Rejected Princesses celebrates those who did. Part art project, part standup routine, part book report, this site imagines what if we made animated musicals about the women of history and myth who refused to behave.” https://www.rejectedprincesses.com
The website has a page on Lyudmila Pavlichenko, who is the deadliest female sniper of all time. https://www.rejectedprincesses.com/princesses/lyudmila-pavlichenko
There are a number of “What if” elements to this RLE:
- Pavlichenko’s decision to try and become a sniper
- The Russian military allowing a female sniper
- The Rejected Princesses website retelling history in comic form
- The Rejected Princesses website front page actually contains a what if: “this site imagines what if we made animated musicals about the women of history and myth who refused to behave.
Whichever approach is chosen, make sure you focus squarely on the relationship between the “What if” and knowledge.
