Armpits 4 August: Discussion event @ LWP

Armpit4August will be running a discussion evening about female body hair and Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) at LWP, on Thursday 19th July from 7-9pm. All self-identified women welcome.

The organisers from Armpits4August will be giving a short presentation about their campaign and their recent day of action in central London. Armpits4August are asking women to grow out their armpit hair this August to raise money for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) charities.

As the campaign aims not only to raise awareness of PCOS but also to create a safe space to discuss women’s complicated, emotional, or embarrassing experiences of body hair, the presentation will be followed by splitting up into small groups for a consciousness-raising (CR) session where these issues can be examined supportively. We will end by coming back together as a group to review the impact of the CR session and how this relates to the role(s) of women in society. Armpits4August is an event for all self-identified women and we hope to host a lively evening of discussion and debate which reflects feminism’s many intersections.
