“Medusa remains a potent icon at a time when women leaders continue to be viewed skeptically or, at worst, as inhuman. Indeed, almost every influential female figure has been photoshopped with snaky hair: Martha Stewart, Condoleezza Rice, Madonna, Nancy Pelosi, Oprah Winfrey, Angela Merkel. (Have a few minutes? Do a Google Image search: Type in a famous woman’s name and the word Medusa.) These businesswomen, politicians, activists, and artists made the same “mistake” that Susan B. Anthony identified when she commented on the lack of women’s voices in 19th-century newspapers: “Women … must echo the sentiment of these men. And if they do not do that, their heads are cut off.” These women infringed upon the domain of men. The only response, as suggested by their Medusa-fied images? To cut their heads off; to silence them.”
~ The Original Nasty Woman by Elizabeth Johnston

    Such an awesome shot – I love it! I love all the textures in it – the fact that half your hair is still wet, some starting to dry… Really cool shot x

    My favourite book as a child was Hairy Maclary. This probably wasn’t what you were going for but it reminds me of that. Awesome picture.

    Amazing shot! On a similar note, a senior manager referred to women working in the same field as me as a ‘coven’. What’s he so afraid of??
