Women Everywhere Are Taking Part In The "Hairy Leg Movement"

Women across the world are joining a movement across social media – saying goodbye to their razors and letting their hair grow free. Members of this movement have taken to posting pictures of their legs in all their natural glory, from fine white-haired legs to a thick forest of growth. One member from the online community, The Hairy Legs Club, states that, "It's such a shame we live in a world where legs or bodies in general should have to be a source of embarrassment or controversy." hairy-legs-movement2 WANG, Women Against Non-essential Grooming (excellent acronym in my opinion) is also all for body autonomy – not shaving just because it’s expected of you. The group has over 15000 likes on facebook, making it clear that more and more women are tired of being told how should they look. This Hairy Leg Movement may not seem like an important political movement, it’s not exactly curing world hunger, but it IS empowering women and challenging societal norms. hairy-legs-movement3 My thoughts: shave if you want to, but only if it’s truly YOU that wants to. Society has enough crazy beauty standards; body hair just shouldn’t be that big of a deal. Do you follow us on Instagram?
