Ruth is a little girl i worked with in Ghana. She had just had her hair done.
I never imagined this image to get quite as much attention as it has done. Looking at it once more, I can see that to fresh eyes perhaps it may seem a little oppressive (i.e. her expression, the hand coming in from above). However let me clarify to people who have misunderstood. This is a girl I worked and lived with for 3 months in a tiny village in Ghana not with some missionary but with BUNAC org. (google them if you’re curious). The huge attention this has got has opened my eyes to how quickly people are willing to jump to a bold statement out of context.  

Girl this is getting attention cause you said she just got her hair done and your hands are touching her newly done hair. Do not touch a black girl’s hair whether she’s 78 12 18 or a fetus don’t touch it. I mean look at her expressions she’s like “whys this mayo touching my hair like I paid 30 Ghana cedis for his ah kwasia “

Convo I just had with my dad

Dad: hey I'm gonna go grocery shopping do you need anything?
Me: uuuhhh....
Me: contemplates wether or not I should ask him to get me pads since I need them desperately
Dad: anything at all?
Me: uh... Yeah.... Can you get me some pads
Dad: Sure
Me: Are you serious? Wouldn't you be embarrassed?
Dad: Natalie, I'm a 56 year old man who has been buying pads for your mother for over 20 years. No I'm not embarrassed.
Me: But I thought guys get squirmish when we ask them to buy this stuff for us
Dad: boys are squirmish. Men will step out and buy you as many pads and tampons as you need. A man will understand that you cannot control your cycle and that this is a natural bodily process. So, if you ever find a guy who's too embarrassed to buy you pad just bleed on everything he owns.
Me: OMG DAD
