Why did we choose this specific body part?
We have started from two simple questions: "What does hair represent for a person?
And, what does hair say about a person and the society they live in?"
Thus, we have delved into the symbolism and cultural meanings that hair has taken on over the centuries.
Since the times of Homo sapiens, hair has been a way to express who we are, a visible testament to our evolution over time. The mane is a universal symbol, a direct and immediate language that sets humanity apart from animals.
It carries with it the profound questions of humanity related to religion, power, politics, sexuality, concepts of masculinity and femininity, and gender discrimination. For this reason, it represents both a source of pride and, at the same time, can evoke shame and discomfort.
With this third edition of Dàme, the theme of hair is brought to the forefront of the discussion, exploring its cultural meanings, and addressing the taboos that hide behind this significant part of our body, from alopecia and white hair to Afro hair and the hijab.

From the publisher:
When it comes to our bodies, we often feel the pressure to conform to certain ideals in order to gain acceptance and approval from others.
We may also struggle with our physical appearance, striving to meet unrealistic standards of perfection. Society tries to persuade us that we are either too thin or too fat, too short or too tall, too feminine or too masculine.
Why can’t we just embrace ourselves as we are?
Founded in 2021, Dàme is not just a magazine but also an inclusive platform, a safe space, a community, and a source of inspiration and comfort. We recognise the challenges that persist in a patriarchal society where diet culture, catcalling, and gender discrimination continue to be daily occurrences.
We celebrate diversity in all its forms and aspire to empower women by promoting the representation of authentic and unfiltered bodies that have genuine stories to share.
