Many women grumble with the endless shaving of hair commonplace in our society. In America, most women remove their armpit and leg hair routinely. A majority of women go further and shave or remove hair on arm and bikini areas. While hair removal has been part of human culture for thousands of years, it is a more modern practice for women in American society. The world of media and consumerism of the early 1900s led to a more hairless society than our American ancestors might have been comfortable.
