Episode 36: Body Hair - Who Cares?

Episode 36

Let's be honest, the expectation for women to alleviate their bodies of hair is REAL and just another notch on the belts of the patriarchy. 

This week Anne and Peggy chat about what and why they do and don't shave/wax/laser while trying to unpack the societal pressures of being a female identifying person in 2018. 

Anne also shares how important it is to diversify the kind of media you are consuming to show you that you don't have to pigeon hole yourselves in these antiquated feminine norms. So she shouts out some killer insta accounts to get you started including: @butchtransgirls @nyanzad_ @bodiposipanda @reclaimyourpower @h_e_r_s_t_o_r_y @nalgonapositivitypride
