Military Regs on Locks Changed

Good news for Army servicewomen:  The US Army has lifted its ban on women wearing locks, twists, or braids.  Under the old rules, not only were locks banned, but, as Capt. Danielle Roach tells the New York Times: “there was constant scrutiny by higher-ups, she said, adding that black women felt as if they were “walking targets” because the regulations were subject to interpretation.”
