Warwickshire: Just like 'No-shave November', an Exeter University student has kickstarted a month-long campaign 'JanuHAIRY' on December 10. The campaign encourages women to grow out their body hair and embrace them.

The 21-year-old student Laura Jackson launched the campaign to help women to love and accept their natural hair while raising money for charity.
Speaking to media, Jackson said that she came up with the idea after growing out her own hair for a drama performance. "But, the way I got responses from some people around me for not shaving my body hairs, I realised that there is still so much more for us to do to be able to accept one another fully and truly," Jackson added.
In fact, the mother of Jackson also scolded her for being lazy and not shaving her body hair. "Are you trying to prove a point?," her mother asked.

She further said that her campaign 'JanuHAIRY' took the internet by storm. While some netizens lambasted her for the Instagram pictures, on the other hand, she was lauded by others.
While supporting Jackson's campaign, a girl posted a picture on the Instagram which read: If all girls were taught how to love each other fiercely instead of how to compete with each other and hate their own bodies, what a different and beautiful world we would live in.
