Two women attempt to break 'society standards' by refusing to shave

Two female Twitter users are attempting to break “society standards” by refusing to shave. 

Sharing an insight on their journey, @laetiky said their decision is hinged on being told by the society that your natural self is dirty, disgusting, not good enough and that to be accepted you have to submit to grooming rituals that can be discomforting, painful or expensive.
