There is a scene in the new Aladdin movie where princess Jasmine explains to her father that she wants to become the next sultan and he mentions that that was unheard of.
I’m not sure kids nowadays understand that he means a woman being sultan (from the context it could just as well have been an unmarried person becoming sultan, or someone that young, etc.). Or if they do then only from movies whose plot is women doing things previously reserved for men.
Am I too optimistic?
