has lots of girl friends
very proper manners

long hair Definition of a girl: A female child from birth to full grown
A young lady Scout in the book, "To Kill a Mockingbird" Willow Smith: Shaved her head and was faced with harsh criticism from the media
" This is a world where women, girls are constantly reminded that they don't belong to themselves; that their bodies are not their own, nor their power or self determination. I made a promise to endow my little girl with the power to always know that her body, spirit and her name are her domain" (Jada Pinkett Smith)
"Willow cut her hair because her beauty, her value, her worth is not measured by the length of her hair." (Jada Pinkett Smith)
Willow's mom is trying to get the point across that it is her body and she can do whatever she wants with it whether society agrees or disagrees
The length of her hair does not change who she is as a person The stereotype of acting like a girl... Scout is a nine year old girl who lives with her dad and older brother
Everyone in the community believed girls should act like girls, especially Scout's aunt Alexandra
Scout didn't care though, she wore overalls and always played with her brother and Dill
Nothing stopped Scout from being who she was
She liked being a tomboy because it made her feel tougher and like she was one of the boys Society is always telling girls to be themselves, yet they say girls should act like girls
It is your own life, so dress how YOU want and act how YOU want
If society thinks that girls should act like girls, then why shouldn't guys have to act like guys?
There is no definition of acting like a girl, if you are a young female then you are a girl
Everyone has the freedom to express who they are
It is their life they can act however they want, whether the media agrees or disagrees In conclusion... Do boys have an equally demanding stereotype? The pressure for girls to act like girls is a lot higher than the pressure for boys to act like boys
the pressure for boys is a different kind compared to girls
more strain for girls to dress properly, have good manners and be perfect
Boys go through pressure to be muscular and masculine and girls go through pressure to be skinny

It is not "lady like" to have short hair
