Weitz in her analysis of “Women and their hair: seeking power through resistance and accommodation”, has used the examples of slaves and women who wear sexy clothes to gain power (Weitz, 2010).
This shows how women can use the available norms and probable cultural norms to gain power in society. Thus, Weitz argues that the best way to address the issues of subordination is by analyzing the actions taken to avoid it (Davies, 1995). In addition these actions should also go ahead to challenge the ideologies that support the subordination.
In the case of the roofers, they feel that the woman had no right to sunbathe in their presence yet they very well knew that they were the problem since they were the ones harassing her and her only problem was her beauty.
