10. with Laura Jackson48:30Our guest this week is an activist who founded the ‘Januhairy’ movement back in 2019. An initiative that encourages women to grow their body hair for the month of January and share images of themselves online, whilst also donating to ‘Body Gossip’, a charity that combines Arts & Education to empower everybody to be the best version of themselves.Our guest first started growing out her body hair in May 2018 as part of her drama degree performance at the University of Exeter. After feeling liberated and more confident in herself, she thought of Januhairy and became eager to get more friends and family involved for the month of Januhairy. The campaign hashtag has now attracted thousands of posts from women across the world. Januhairy is not about shaming women who choose to remove body and facial hair, as our guest has said for the Guardian online at the beginning of this year; “Shave whenever you want to, but make sure you’re making the choice for you... It’s not just about hair, it’s about building a conversation around the subject.”We’re incredibly excited to announce our final guest for our first season. This week we’re getting personal with Laura Jackson.Thank you so much to everyone who has listened this season, we'll be back very soon with our second series and some incredible guests! In the meantime, you can find us on Instagram @gettingpersonalpodcast. Send us a message with who you would like to hear on the show next, and make sure to leave us a review on Apple Podcasts.
