Women Talking: Hair and Skin

Hannah More School, New Kingsley Rd, St Philips, Bristol BS2 0LT

muslim women talking
This session was part of the Festival of solutions: It's all about the women. We chose hair and skin as our second in the series , because we all have skin and hair and have something to say about it. So we can have an amusing conversation about hair disasters, and sunburn but at the same time we can discuss the deeper isues around lighter skin being seen as more socailly acceptable. the huge impact of consumerism and the idea that black women’s bodies are somehow public property..Perpetauated during slavery and by the Media , we feel it is really important to discuss these themes.
