In particular, women are encouraged to be perpetually ashamed of themselves, eternally striving after false rewards. Being blonde has a particular resonance in American culture, keyed to gullibility, innocence, fey-ness and desirability.

Why not be a blonde and see were Clairol hair coloring slogans during the 1960s.
