Get Hairy February campaign encourages women to grow body hair to support victims of violence

A new national campaign to raise money to fight violence against women is encouraging women to go au naturale and stop shaving their legs and underarms during February.

“It’s acceptable for men to grow seedy moustaches in workplaces around the country, but would it be as acceptable for women to do the same with their armpit and legs hair in the warmer months of February? It’s part of creating that conversation.”

Get Hairy February is about ensuring women have the choice to shave or not to shave, which includes being able to choose not to shave without shame and stigma.
