I am a woman. I am a practicing attorney. I am the only woman in my office over the age of 35 who doesn’t color her hair. I have some gray, but not a lot yet, and I never seriously considered coloring my hair until this job. I don’t want to: it’s expensive and a pain in the ass to keep up. About a year ago, I was in court, and a female attorney walked in with curly, bobbed, naturally gray hair, and her mere act of publicly displaying her natural hair color seemed not just unusual but defiant. Meanwhile many men in my office and in the courts have gray hair, and I doubt anyone thinks twice about it.
What a beautiful photoset of women. Women we don’t often see portrayed in the media, but these are, indeed, women — just as grey-haired men are men.
I can’t wait for grey. I hope it’s more on the white side.
it’s our future selves
This seriously makes my heart happy
I’m 26 and I have one grey hair and it breaks my heart not that’s grey, but that I am not going grey like my mother who has perfect mr. fantastic stripes when she pulls her hair back in a ponytail.
