Starting last month, Mormon women all over the world have gradually taken a stand against gender inequality. These brave women have started wearing pants to church on Sunday. This movement was started by a select few and has grown to a full blown feminist movement via social media.
Officially, there is no policy against women wearing pants to the Mormon church. But after years of following rigid gender roles, these women have felt the pressure to wear dresses only to avoid reprimand or ridicule.
The courageous few who wore pants did more than just raise voices and eyebrows. They have opened a means of communication both positive but mostly negative. There have been reports of dirty looks, plenty of nasty comments and some have even received threats of death. All this commotion just for the plain desire to worship in the comfort of pants.
The fight for equality is always long and arduous. Eventually, displeased Mormons will have to get used to the elegantly dressed ladies wearing all the latest designer pants. After all, you should always wear your Sunday best to your house of worship.
As the holidays approach we all tend to get busy and wrapped up in out own lives, sometimes forget that this is the time for giving and spending time with our families.
It never ceases to surprise me how truly giving our family of hairdressers can be. The Hairdressers helping Hairdressers fundraising event that took place on December 9th 2012 was such a a wonderful way to remind us of how lucky we are to be in a profession where we all thrive on helping one another. So a special shout out to all the artist, sponsors and stylist that took time out of their busy schedules during the holiday season to help the salons and stylist that were affected by Hurricane Sandy.
It truly is heart warming to know that we can count on one another during a difficult time.
Have a safe and Happy Holiday Season.
