My curiosity was spurred when I started watching historical Asian dramas.
China Heritage Quarterly posted this article written by Michael R. Godley:
Rioters tried to cut the queues of Chinese immigrants in Denver in 1880
This scene reminds of Mr. Sunshine when he cuts his long hair braid.
Yes, you’re right. That was a really emotional scene for me…so symbolic.
Oh, that was such an interesting article! I never knew that a hairstyle could be a symbol of oppression.
I was really surprised too. Glad you enjoyed the article.
mine was about those women with those various hairstyles, I do know the dramas were wigs but did they have those kinds of hairstyles way back when, very interesting. and what about the tail on men what did it signify?
I haven’t read the article, so I will do that today
Hi Mary! I hope you enjoyed the article. What did we even do without the internet to search for topics?
As for me, countless hours at the library. But I still enjoy going to the library and browing the racks.
hehe same here, hey that’s what I did when I was younger, google it is a good one, I did enjoy the article, really enlightened me esp about the hair being their pride. also, Wikipedia has some stuff on hair too.
