Are women's hairy armpits now a thing?
Hairy Armpits Is The Latest Women’s Trend On Instagram | Bored Panda
On social media and red carpets, from New York to China, hairy underarms are having a mainstream moment. At first, it was just for fun. Then the extra hair was met by cringes from her 5-year-old daughter and 9-year-old niece. Women are proudly showing off their growth on Instagram and YouTube, and it's not just Miley Cyrus anymore. Jemima Kirke of "Girls" flashed her fair-colored au naturel look -- earning some cringes -- at the June 1 CFDA awards, one of the top fashion events of the year. On Sina Weibo, a popular microblogging site in China, the women's rights activist known as Xiao Meili held an "Armpit Hair Competition," complete with prizes that included condoms and a vibrator, to protest societal pressure on women to shave under there. Love it or hate it, not shaving under the arms has morphed into a call to action for other women as well who are looking to be free of the constraint or choose for themselves without ridicule.

Comedian and feminist writer Kate Smurthwaite is a staunch advocate of embracing the natural look. Worse still, when life suddenly gets busy you end up with stubble. Men, it seems, are easy.
Why, I at last wondered, would I shave my legs when no one would see them except me , and especially when leggings and tights are worn during the winter months — when just my own hairiness hairyness? Anyway, this got me to wondering why in the world would women shave their bodies, when we spend so much time trying to tame and beautify the hair on top of the head? Well, depends on who you talk to, of course.
