In case you didn't know how shaving armpit and leg hair for women became a norm, you can blame the relentless advertising campaigns. At the beginning of the 20th century, women, and of course society in general, couldn't care less about the hair growing on their bodies. However, after sleeveless dresses came into fashion, advertisers began targeting women's armpit hair, encouraging women to remove them. Then followed leg hair. By the s, after what seemed to be merely a fad created by annoying advertisers, shaving became a social norm lasting for decades. However, these days people have begun to question the long-lasting beauty standard and its effects on women's body image. While some of us merely participate in discussions, other women dare to quit shaving and turn to social media to show that hair is nothing but a normal and natural part of their bodies.

By Radhika Sanghani. Would you ever stop shaving your legs? And the only ones who made it unnatural is the media set to dehumanize women. My generation of feminists is depressing me. Rihanna's ad isn't just 'sexual' - it's 'unattainable sexual'. Celebrities against grooming. So last century. But would you grow out your pubic hair? Should we help our daughters to shave hated body hair?
This is the time of year when razor blades go into overdrive, with many women getting rid of all evidence of body hair as they don shorts and swimsuits for the summer season. So it might surprise you that one of the buzziest blogs right now features women showing off their unshaved limbs. Please note some images on the site are not safe for work. Besides sharing their photos, women on the site also vent about the pressure to shave their legs. The year-old Baltimore mom said she stopped about three years ago during the colder pants season and never resumed the habit. Bregel makes an exception for special occasions — like when she served as maid of honor in a friend's wedding last fall — but she promptly lets her hair grow back afterwards. She calls her decision liberating. In April, Veet — a company that specializes in hair removal products — came under fire for a series of ads that showed women transforming into men after not shaving their legs for a day.
