Notable American Women (II)

Is the Head Itself Still Essential?

«At the time of this writing, the head probably cannot be omited from the person pursuing the female life project. Radical antiemotionalists have attempted a head-free trajectory in the world, […]. Perhaps one day this approach will seem heroic, yet a woman without an operative head is still unable to signal her former world; to observers, she is nearly similar to a deceased person–her skin is cold, and she does not respond when prodded or splashed with water. […] But a compromise is available for those women looking to limit the role of their heads in their behavioral and identity development enterprises.» (p. 121)
