An Arizona State University Professor of gender-studies has been offering extra-credit to her students when it comes to personal-grooming.

According to ASU News, Dr. Breanne Fahs has been giving extra-points on their GPA if “female student participants stop shaving their legs and underarms for 10 weeks during the semester while keeping a journal to document their experiences. For male students, the assignment is to shave all body hair from the neck down.”


Fahs says, “There’s no better way to learn about societal norms than to violate them and see how people react,”


“There’s really no reason why the choice to shave, or not, should be a big deal. But it is, as the students tend to find out quickly,” Fahs said to ASU News.
