Rapunzelís Daughters: What Womenís Hair Tells Us About Womenís Lives
Rose Weitz (au)
Hair is one of the first things other people notice about us -- & is one of the primary ways we declare our identity to others. Here, Weitz explores how & why hair matters so much in girlsí & womenís lives. She begins by surveying the history of womenís hair, from the covered hair of the Middle Ages to the 2-foot-high, wildly ornamented styles of pre-Revolutionary France to the purple dyes worn by some modern teens. Weitz examines what hair means: to young girls & to women; how girls learn to consider it central to their identity; what part it plays in adolescent (& adult) struggles with identity & with romance; how it can create conflicts & opportunities in the workplace; & how women face the changes in their hair that illness & aging can bring.
