  3. I don't think it was because of lice, more because of wanting to be a grown, independent woman.

  4. Did you see the TV-series about her? I really loved it and it emphasized on exactly what you are writing; the strong independant Selma. I think there is so much to her that we don´t know yet. If she would have lived now, she would probably be Marie Louise Ekman times 100.

  5. grown women get lice, too. but maybe it's the circles i'm running in these days.

  7. Sure grown women get lice and they probably did more often back in the 1880's but not many women were fierce enough to chop off their locks. I insist Selma did this because she was strong, not because of yucky parasites.Have not seen any lice references tied to the cut anywhere. I think she wanted to be an equal to men and women in every way she fancied. She set her own standards. And won a nobel prize. Read her.
