Redheads are rare. On average, only 2 per cent of the global population has red hair. In her new book, Red: A Natural History of the Redhead, Colliss Harvey who says her hair colour has been the most defining feature of her life analyses red hair through the ages: exploring science, religion, politics, feminism and culture. The author goes into Darwin mode, tracing the redhead gene as it made its way out of Africa yes really across the world. Almost uniquely, as Colliss Harvey points out, when it comes to the stereotyping of redheads, women tend to get a better deal. Red-headed women are often portrayed as sexy, fiery-tempered vixens, which may be linked to their ability to produce more Vitamin D — a source of strength. For the redheaded male, things are more problematic. This leads Colliss Harvey to the modern day stigma redheads deal with, a form of bullying that has become known as gingerism. Thankfully it looks like that is changing.
A new history of the redhead asserts their supremacy, or so a redhead told us
