More than Just Hair

What is the Crown Act?

For most Black women, hair is a lot more than just hair. It is political and can cause barriers in the workplace due to discrimination. 

In the US, the national CROWN Act (Create a Respectful and Open World for Natural Hair) provides protection for race based hair  discrimination. So far, in Canada there isn’t any similar sweeping federal rule but people are pushing for that to change.
