The Last Taboo a talking point

The only book on women and body hair, The Last Taboo: Women and Body Hair (Manchester University Press, 2007, paperback reprint 2011) continues to lead the media to our department where I edited and introduced the volume and where several of the contributors work too. We remain seen as the experts in the field world-wide, which is why I have spoken about the book and this topic on radio, television, newspapers and blogs in the UK, USA, Canada, Holland and Norway.  A blog I was invited to write about current discussions in the media about women and fashions in pubic hair removal was recently published on internet blog site theconversation.com, which describes itself as ‘an independent source of news and views, sourced from the academic and research community and delivered direct to the public. Our team of professional editors work with university and research institute experts to unlock their knowledge for use by the wider public.’
