We are happy to say that we live in the age of acceptance at the moment, and social norms and “taboos” are being challenged everywhere you look, especially when it comes to body image and the way women are presented in public. Well, it was about time for that to happen!
However, many people, including women themselves, are feeling a bit disoriented because they think that these changes and challenges are happening too quickly, and many people think that there are “more important issues we should be focused on” in this world.
The latest example of breaking down the barriers comes in the name of “Januhairy”
The woman that started it all is a British student named Laura Jackson. She wrote that this is not an angry campaign for people to see how normal body hair it, but it is more of an empowering project. The aim of the campaign is for women to grow out their body hair for one month in order to support the Body Gossip’s education program – a program that encourages everyone to “rock their own brand of gorgeous”.
Women from all around the world have already started posting their unshaved body hair photos, and you can check some of them below. Also, feel free to tell us your thoughts on this whole initiative in the comments down below!
