One of my biggest media-related pet peeves is everyone who says that Sleeping Beauty has a misogynistic message because Aurora is a passive protagonist, as if the entire story isn't focused on, driven by, and largely told from the point of view of three old women--the fairies--and their conflict with another woman--Maleficent. The women drive the entire narrative, and Prince Phillip would never have succeeded in his quest without the aid of the fairies.
Like, yeah, we can definitely talk about the misogyny inherently baked into a film made in the 50s, because it's definitely there, but I have always stood by the interpretation that the three fairies are the primary protagonists, not Aurora. Any analysis of the story that centers Aurora feels flawed to me, because the entire first section of the movie is focused on the fairies and their plan to subvert Maleficent's curse. The entire core plot is centered around the conflict between the fairies.
I feel like a better way to talk about the portrayal of Sleeping Beauty's female characters vs male could look at the way King Stefan has such a huge personality that people still love him to this day, and meanwhile Queen Leah has so little personality and presence that I had to Google her name even though Sleeping Beauty has been one of my favorite movies since I was a child. Hell, the Queen has so little impact on the story that there's debate over who voiced her.

She was a wild spirit,
But a soft heart
And such a sweet soul
