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.
My mom always said when I was growing up “gray hair is your crown” and talk about how she wouldn’t ever dye her hair and that made me so happy and now she does :|
Actually, what I love about this is how all of them have beautiful LONG hair. It seems so often when you see an older woman they go “Forget this!” and the all get that same short grey bubble cut. To me it always felt like a symbol of going “Yes, I am old.” I’ve always insisted that I am going to have beautiful long and grey hair.
Important lesson: You cannot lead effectively if you do not share the same burden as your followers.
