FEMME

Get Out of My Hair

In this episode of F-EMME, we're talking all things female body hair; the history of removing it, why society has such a problem with it, and the criticism women get when they display it. We also share a few personal body hair stories and discuss famous women who have bared their "pit-staches". Love it or hate it, this is a surprisingly controversial topic.

And it all started with an ad in Harper's Bazaar in 1915...https://outskirtsofthetwenties.wordpress.com/2014/01/05/it-started-with-harpers-bazaar/

Here is the link to the article "Perilous Patches and Pitstaches" mentioned in this episode, http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/0361684313497924.

Meet Felicia

Often, being "different" means you stand out; you don't fit in. That can make life difficult when all you really want is to be treated like everyone else.

This week, the wonderful Felicia Pihlström joins us to talk about growing up in Sweden as a half Thai-half Swedish woman. We discuss her childhood in a small Swedish town, how she was bullied because of her looks, and what it's like to always "wear the struggle".

You can listen to this episode tonight at 9pm or on Mixcloud anytime, https://www.mixcloud.com/K103/f-emme-23-01-18-meet-felicia/.

Join us next week for a discussion of female body hair.
