The pursuit of perfection is hair-raising

At a party a grown woman is wearing pigtails. The host, too, is sporting braided twin ponies. I like this new trend. Women are letting their hair down. Well, in this case they’re putting it up, but you know what I mean. Women are getting real again.

Joy Anderson is a survivor of human sex trafficking. Adopted and raised in a Christian home in Aiken, SC, Anderson became enslaved at 21 years old.
