Two women attempt to break ‘society standards’ by refusing to shave their body hair

Two women have refused to conform to the societal standards of beauty by refusing to shave their body hair.

One of the women, identified as @laetiky on Twitter, took to the platform to share photos of them flaunting their hairy bodies with confidence and pride.

She said her goal is to defy the beauty standards set for women by society that their natural body is dirty, disgusting and not good enough.

She captioned the photos,

“Most women can relate to the discomfort it is to have to submit to beauty standards. When society tells you that your natural self is dirty, disgusting, not good enough and that to be accepted you have to submit to grooming rituals that can be discomforting, painful or expensive.

Im not yet where i want to be when it comes to rejecting beauty standards but im slowly getting there. I’ve been able to deconstruct myself on many aspect but the pressure to be “beautiful” still a little bit there.

I had the opportunity to meet Esther, a very inspiring woman and artist. She describes herself as a body hair activist and i was really inspired by her story of self acceptance. She shared with me the journey of how she went from hiding her natural self to how she now embraced it.”
