There's A Female Version of Movember And It's Called Armpits4August

Want to get some revenge on your boyfriend for always participating in No Shave November? Well, it might be time to embrace Armpits4August. According to The Cut, Armpits4August is a new initiative that serves to raise money for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), a little known condition that effects up to 10% of women. One of the symptoms is excess hair growth on the face and body, so the movement serves support PCOS sufferers. We’re all for supporting a good cause, but why must it be the month of August–the height of tank top and bikini season?! So far, Armpits4August is pretty much just a U.K. thing, but people are already calling it the “Female Movember.” This is a trend we kind of hope stays in the UK. What do you think of the movement? Would you participate?
