In recent years, more and more women have ditched their razors, buoyed in part by body-hair-happy celebrities, beauty brands, and the rest of us alike taking a definitive stance on body hair.
So it shouldn't come as a surprise that 2019 is off to a similar start, as women have taken to social media to celebrate #Januhairy, a project that encourages women to grow out and share photos of their body hair for the month of January.
Started by student Laura Jackson, who first grew out her body hair for a school project, #Januhairy encourages women to accept and empower themselves while challenging the view that female body hair is abnormal and something to be ashamed of. It's a fundraising effort too: #Januhairy is also raising money for Body Gossip, a nonprofit that promotes education about body acceptance, by encouraging followers to sponsor women up to the task.
