“Feminism isn’t about making women stronger. Women are already strong. It’s about changing the way the world perceives that strength.” - G.D Anderson
OMG SHE'S BALD created by Charnah Ellesse at girlswillbeboys, is a project exploring modern ideas of femininity through women who have shaved their heads.
The idea of OMG SHE’S BALD was birthed in the summer of 2015, solely to tell the world "yes I shaved my head and do you know what, IT’S OKAY". Since Char shaved her head, so many girls have praised her for her bravery, or confided in her that they’ve wanted to cut their hair short or buzz it off too, but just don’t have the confidence or strength against societies stereotypes. This project is to share the stories of women of different cultures who don’t feel obliged to have long hair to be considered feminine, desirable or even to avoid being questioned on their sexuality. And ultimately, to share the message that ladies, you can do absolutely anything you want without hesitation, guilt or explanation.
The film has been critically acclaimed by Dazed magazine, and thus far has been screened in both Amsterdam and Paris.
