Yes…Jada Pinkett-Smith, the woman who is married to Will Smith and decided to hyphenate her name…a role model for women everywhere!  yes, i said it!

Jada made big news by letting her “I whip my hair back and forth” daughter shave her head.  What?  A girl with no hair?  that’s front page news, that’s a newsworthy comment.

OMG!

Really people?  Women are not defined by their hair, their clothes, or the people they are with. Women are defined by their actions and who they truly are!

But what did Jada say to this when it all happened?
“This subject is old but I have never answered it in its entirety. And even with this post it will remain incomplete.

The question why I would LET Willow cut her hair. First the LET must be challenged. This is a world where women, girls are constantly reminded that they don’t belong to them

selves; that their bodies are not their own, nor their power, or self determination. I made a promise to endow my little girl with the power to always know that her body, spirit, and her mind are HER domain. Willow cut her hair because her beauty, her value, her worth is not measured by the length of her hair. It’s also a statement that claims that even little girls have the RIGHT to own themselves and should not be a slave to even their mother’s deepest insecurities, hopes, and desires. Even little girls should not be a slave to the preconceived ideas of what a culture believes a little girl should be. More to come. Another day.”
Wow….I think that said it all!
