Why are we so unnerved by underarm hair on women? After Nike had posted a picture of Nigerian singer and visual artist Annahstasia Enuke on Instagram, the initial reaction was praise. It, however, turned malicious when comments started to describe the campaign as disgusting, exposing the need for yet another chat about body positivity.

These days, many women in the public eye, like Miley Cyrus or Amandla Stenberg, embrace their freedom to do what they like. In reality, it still is rare, and women still get shunned for having hair on their legs, stomachs, nipples, chins, pubic areas and underarms, and other areas of their bodies. Here are ten women who confidently embrace their underarm hair:

“Straight men did not find me attractive. I think they were scared of me because I was different. I’ve always asked, ‘Why? Why do I have to do that? Why do I have to look this way? Why do I have to dress this way? Why do I have to behave this way?’”

shared Madonna in an interview with Harpers Bazaar.
