I never thought of how not shaving is yet another option of ‘women’s empowerment’ that many black and WOC shy away from. I don’t shave simply because I don’t want to. However growing up I was very hairy from head to toe (luckily I’ve always had nice hair) and wouldn’t even wear skirts until I was twelve when my mom started allowing me to shave.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
