Jada Pinkett Smith On Daughter Willow’s Hair Choices [PHOTOS]
Actress Jada Pinkett Smith is a strong woman, wife, mother, and humanitarian. However, recently her parenting has recently come under fire for her daughter Willow's ever-changing hair styles. From long dreads, to short and dyed pink, Jada has taken to Facebook to explain why she allows her daughter to be her own person that can make decisions for herself.On November 21, Jada posted a letter to her Facebook page concerning questions about Willow's hair:
"A letter to a friend...
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 themselves; 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."
