Happy International Women’s Day.
All over the world women are celebrating what #ADAYWITHOUTWOMEN would look like. Many have decided to strike by not going to work, marching or wearing red. If you aren’t able to participate in these ways….. let your voice be heard not just on this day, but for the rest of your life! How am I letting my voice be heard? I was recently asked by All Things Hair to be apart of their tribute on “How Women are Expressing themselves Through Their Hair.”
Here is a snippet of my thoughts……
“I’ve had natural hair for seven years. At first I was afraid of how I would look with short kinky hair. Being on this journey I have learned so much about who I am, and what my culture is all about. As an African American we are shamed into thinking our hair has to be one way and not embrace how versatile it actually can be. I am no longer afraid of who I am because as women, we are strong creatures who are a force to be reckoned with… we just have to believe and never lose our HOPE.”
Another way I’ve decided to be in solidarity with my sisters is to wear red. Red is such a powerful color! Its not too late. If you don’t have red clothing you can simple wear red lipstick.
