Plantagenet (14th century): Horizontal Braiding, Gorget.
Gorget - When a wimple is worn without a veil, pinned over hair coils on the side of the head (Fig. 19). Sometimes the coils were braided horizontally (Fig.18). Horizontal Braiding- popular in the mid 14th century, the head would go uncovered, but sometimes a fillet would support the plaits ( Fig. 22).
So late in putting this up, but had to share my favorite new picture! Incredibly honored to have won a Planned Parenthood Maggie Award with some of my favorite women: Zerlina Maxwell, Janet Mock & Irin Carmon.
oh just a few of my feminist heroes hanging out. CONGRATS!!
You win Rick. Haha. Where do I send my donation?
This is an important message on how privilege really works.
