Women and hair and how to accept your hirsutism

‘Getting to the root of the problem’

Charis Books & More presents a discussion today dealing with women and the issues some have with their hair. The event begins at 7:30 p.m. at Charis, 1189 Euclid Ave. N.E., Atlanta, GA 30307.

Alison Amoroso, contributor to “Our Bodies, Ourselves,” will be on hand to discuss her new book, “Unwanted Hair and Hirsutism.” The book touches on the difficulties many women feel about accepting or removing body hair and the embarrassment accompanying these feelings. She will also talk about when “normal” hair growth becomes “unwanted” by “cultural beauty standards.”
