Good and Bad

I decided to include a picture of scissors because the idea of cutting hair was both good and bad for men and women respectively during this time in Russia. The article started by talking about the idea that men began cutting their beards and wearing shorter caftans. However, it also talked about how Elizabeth would cut the hair of women who dared to try to look better than her. This cutting of hair was good for men, but was used in order to punish women.
