Gray hair – in search of the Silvercat

I’m fascinated by the absence of gray hair in my life. As a ‘male’ youth of the feminist movement I have continually had women in positions of authority over me. There have only been a few male bosses who were worth their weight, while the females overwhelmingly dominate every aspect of my life.

In many ways I have come to expect this continual mentoring and guidance from women. Which is why it is all the more shocking for me to find this chinc in their armor: gray hair.

Among the 100 most powerful women on Forbes list only four of them have natural hair, even though all of them are at the age where gray hair sets in. I don’t know what to make of this. My idols have dropped the ball on this one and I am left to fend for myself.

Join me as I explore this trend and try to discover the truth of the situation and where I fit into all of it.
