A Leg Up For Learning!
A haircut is heroic, no doubt. But the real heroism happens every day, in countless homes, as women stand naked in the shower trying to reach the hair on the back of their legs with a flimsy disposable razor. As they lay on the beautician’s bench anticipating the skin-tearing wax removal. How much blood has been shed as women bravely live up to the gendered norms imposed upon them?
Sharon Josephson, Associate Dean of Arts and Foundational Programs, and Helen Jackman, Executive Director of OC Foundation, are getting their revenge!
$1k - Phil Ashman waxes his legs (Milestone reached! Please see photos and video below!)
$2.5k - Phil and Grant Lawrence wax their chests!
$5k - Phil and Grant get full Pinky Blinder!
Friends, please support. Do it for yourselves, for women everywhere, and for OC students. It's payback time!
