Willow Smith - Jada Pinkett Smith's Positive Parenting, Defends Willow's Hair Choice

Jada Pinkett Smith may not be the first person you think of in the activists for freedom of speech, nationwide liberation or active feminism, but if you take a look at her Facebook fan page it seems that these are concerns close to her heart and ones that she spends plenty of time thinking and doing something about.  

For instance, in October she began preaching choice: "We all have the freedom to CHOOSE to live how we want. The freedom of choice is the crux of happiness. We are not here to live up to another's approval. Take responsibility for YOUR life, YOUR values, YOUR beliefs and expect NO ONE to hold that banner for you or to prove it RIGHT."

Most recently, she spoke in defence of her daugher, Willow's decision to shave off her hair.

"This subject is old but I have never answered it in its entirety. And even with this post it will remain incomplete." She began, "The question why I would LET Willow cut her hair. First the LET must be challenged. 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 mind are HER domain. Willow cut her hair because her beauty, her value, her worth is not measured by the length of her hair. It's also a statement that claims that even little girls have the RIGHT to own themselves and should not be a slave to even their mother's deepest insecurities, hopes and desires. Even little girls should not be a slave to the preconceived ideas of what a culture believes a little girl should be."
