Girl Driven Research Project

(2003)

 In partnership with CURL, Girl World designed and implemented Participatory Research asking the question “How do young African American women feel about their hair and what influences them to feel that way?” Issues of self esteem, self perception, cultural norms, racism and the creation of beauty images were all confronted as part of this project.
