When I was at university in the UK in the late Noughties, one of the most liberating things about travelling back to my native China for the summer break was not having to worry about shaving. Chinese tradition had no demands in this respect — armpit or leg hair was just part of your body and nothing to be ashamed about. This month, a campaign headed by young female activist Xiao Meili in China asked women to post pictures of their unshaven armpits on the popular social media site Weibo, China's version of Twitter.
Her look at the premiere of Notting Hill, beaming in a red sequined Vivienne Tam dress, arm raised to reveal a dark tuft, was immediately celebrated as a subversive feminist bird-flip against female beauty standards. Armpit hair remains a bizarre sticking point for anti-feminists. A few days ago, Nike uploaded a picture on Instagram showing the model and musician Annahstasia Enuke with a small amount of underarm hair visible; in response, thousands of commenters expressed outrage and disgust.

And Weibo, a microblogging site in China, just posted the results of what is probably the world's first " Women's Armpit Hair Competition.
But more and more women are ditching the razors when it comes to their armpits, in favour of going au naturel. Model Gigi Hadid was the latest celeb to jump on the hairy armpit bandwagonshowing off her fuzz in a shoot for the Love Advent Calendar. Comedian and feminist writer Kate Smurthwaite is a staunch advocate of embracing the natural look.
