Science journalist Sarah Everts (The Joy of Sweat: The Strange Science of Perspiration) explains why our bodies make sweat and how deodorant marketers spun it into a societal problem for women.

UNCUT GEMS: Body Hair with Sukhjit Kaur Khalsa (TEASER)

**Unladies' Room Patreon teaser** With spring a few days away, tis the season to talk BODY HAIR! But my 2019 interview with spoken word artist and performer Sukhjit Kaur Khalsa isn't the same old to-shave-or-not-to-shave body hair binary. Sukhjit is a practicing Sikh, and letting it all grow (aka keeping kesh) is an article of faith. And as you might imagine, that was easier said than done for Sukhjit once puberty rolled around, and visible hairiness attracted ALL of the unwanted attention.  To hear the full, AD-FREE episode, join the Patreon and THANK YOU!!

The feminist blogosphere era officially ended last November when Jezebel, website and water cooler of millennial feminism, was shut down by its media overlords.

Then, New York Times reporter Emma Goldberg explains how the feminist blogosphere's success help put it out of business and how Gen Z feminists are navigating today's fractured feminist internet.
