LaDIYfest presents: Hair today! Hair tomorrow?

A call to arms, and to legs, and to cunts!

During the month of June we want to encourage women to grow out their body hair and to keep a reflective diary of their thoughts and experiences; how does this feel to you? How are others responding to you?

We want to explore the hairy politics of how women’s bodies are being patrolled and controlled by societal expectations to shave and groom. We ask you to raise your hairy arms in protest, and as a celebration of natural beauty!

We will bring this together with a workshop in early July (details tbc) in a safe and supportive environment and hope to turn this into a zine of people’s experiences. In the meantime, please feel free to post your thoughts, worries and even photos on the wall below.

We realise some of you might already be confident hair growers already, everyone is welcome to join in and support each other!
