It Makes Women into ‘Witches’
What is it? Long hair:
Whatever the fashion, no woman over 55 should even think of wearing her hair long and loose, unless she wants to look like a mad witch. Hillary Clinton unwisely let her hair down recently and her authority drained away. She would do better to rein it back again neatly. Long hair may say “I’m seductive”, but it seldom says “I have authority”.
You can be sexual or you can have authority, says the Telegraph, one of Britain’s national newspapers.
This is the same fashion argument that the New York Times made two months ago: As commenters noted there too, it’s an argument about sexuaity, and whether older women should express any.
Is there some kind of p.r. campaign going on here?
