I do agree that there are strong female characters in some Disney movies, but the majority are not. Not all Disney movies are sexist but many, if not most, are.

Mulan tells us that women can be equal to men. Sometimes even more so.

Pocahontas tells us that women are significant to society.

Even Frozen (somewhat) tells us that women don't always need men to find happiness. That sometimes your family is just enough.

Frozen also shows to us that men don't always have to be the richer person to keep a relationship going.

Not all disney movies are sexist.

( :3 this is just me trying to keep my childhood from being broken hahahha)

Not all movies and not in all situations, but the majority of Disney movies are quite sexist.

The female characters are weak (Jasmin), base their decisions around getting a man (Ariel), or are simply a prize for the male lead to win by saving her (Aurora). A large part of that is because they are based on fairy tales and fables which themselves are sexist, but that doesn't mean that the movies are not.
