READ ALL ABOUT IT: GIRL CUTS SELF SHAVING!

Drawing on each other and Christine Hope’s 1982 article ‘Caucasian Female Body Hair and American Culture’ VoxBustle, and Daily Life discuss the influences on women increasingly removing their body hair. Broad conclusion: advertising and fashion!

Each also mentions the 1920 news article which details – by today’s standards – the banal fact of a young woman cutting herself shaving and neatly compares such reporting with today’s expectations: that what is newsworthy today is when a woman does not remove her body hair.
