We all know that one safe generalization about women is that they tend to be chattier than men. That's particularly true during visits to hair salons, where, trapped for hours in styling chairs, they readily share information about themselves — their vacations, their jobs, their love lives... even their politics. That's why the non-profit organization Cut It Out is genius: The program trains employees of beauty salons to look for signs of domestic abuse in clients, and then gives them the tools to provide victims with help and information about housing, childcare, and insurance. The program just began in NYC in October, but now there are branches in every state. Clip above.
