Hairy Legs

Directed by Andrea Dorfman

Produced by Liz Cowie

Hairy Legs is a short animated film about a girl who, at 14 years old, decides not to shave her legs – a decision that she maintains throughout her life. This small yet radical act signifies her becoming a feminist and, as she grows older, what it means to stand up to the patriarchy and the systemic inequality it creates.
