In 2020 it feels like everything has to be a statement, but supermodel Ashley Graham just shared an important message about woman's body hair, without saying anything at all.

Deciding whether to shave, wax, epilate, or laser is of course up to you, but there's no doubt that there remains considerable pressure on women to be permanently well-groomed.

It's tiresome, and that's exactly why Graham's latest Instagram post struck such a chord. Sharing some pictures from her incredibly wholesome birthday, the supermodel looked like she had a day of low-key perfection, from woodland walks with her husband and son to a quickly demolished chocolate cake.

To finish, Graham shared a snap from her bath tub, complete with visible under-arm hair.

Our favourite thing about it? Graham didn't feel the need to accompany the image with any kind of bold statement: she just posted it like it was nothing, because normalising women's body hair shouldn't have to be a statement.
