For a woman, what is hair?
In Joseon Dynasty, black, balloon-like hair is a prerequisite for beauty, while short and stiff hair is described as negative and ugly. In 1920, a new woman was called a modern girl. For women, short hair had a strong sense of challenge to the established system.
Now in 2019, women still cut their hair, a move to reject the social definition of what is 'feminine', the "Escape the Corset" movement.
Resisting the feminine standards that the society imposes, and finding one's real self, in 2019, let's meet these women. These women who are writing the history of women's liberation and solidarity.
