Now, I know I’m not the first woman to fudge my…

If Our Hair Is Our "Crowning Glory", Why Do We Punish It?

I would guess that since the dawn of time, women and probably some men too, have gone to great lengths to care for their hair (no pun intended).  Some of them wore wigs, presumably to protect their hair from intense sunlight, and others used a variety of methods to deal with everything from normal dirt, to graying and even hair loss.  Folks back then were pretty careful about their hair and only used natural ingredients because, well, that’s all they had.

Fast forward to the baby…

Think about this – if both partners attempt to lead there is much friction, resistance and the dance appears as a chaotic battlefield. If both want to follow the other – nothing magical happens – they just go round and round in aimless circles or…

It is difficult to believe that so many women still live in extreme violence and are killed in the hands of their partners. We all want to think that this doesn’t happen. But as Aabra shows in Taliban Escape, violence against women is a growing problem.
