JanuHairy Is A Thing

My best friend once told me, of course we don’t shave our legs in the winter, it’s extra padding to keep us warm.  Well now it seems that has caught on worldwide as a thing, who knew.

Glamour magazine claims women from around the world are taking part in a new social media campaign called ‘Januhairy’. They have stopped shaving not only their legs but their armpits too.

Laura Jackson, a 21 year-old college student from England, started the campaign. She tells the BBC; “Though I felt liberated and more confident in myself, some people around me didn’t understand or agree with why I didn’t shave. I realized that there is still so much more for us to do to be able to accept one another fully and truly.”

Women are now posting pictures of their hairy legs and armpits online.
