Body hair has always been regarded as a male trait. Beauty standards for females have been decided differently and generations by generations these standards and rules are followed religiously by people. This societal dictate that women must be smooth, hairless, and delicate has been narrated by generations now. But some women are now set to challenge this mindset of female beauty with their body hairs specifically their beards.
