Why should woman have to shave their underarm hair, if men don’t? Students at the Gandhi School set out to find the answer on the street. Female and male students raising up their own arms and showing their armpit hair ask what people think. The experts are consulted about the history of hair: when armpit hair historically became a symbol of masculinity and how shaving and waxing hair became values of femininity. Your Wings is a teen-girls’ provocative documentary questioning the gendering power of armpit hair. (KIM Sunah)
