Survey Request - WoC and Body Hair

Hello Everyone! As part of my Laidlaw Research Project I am carrying out research on body hair and racialized bullying of teenage girls in UK secondary schools, and how this interacts with the relationship between misogyny and racism.

I would appreciate it if any students who self-identify as BAME and Female students could take the time to complete this survey, which should take less than 10 minutes. There is also the opportunity to be contacted for follow-up interviews, which you will receive a voucher for completing.

The survey is completely anonymous and no identifying information will be collected. Your anonymous data will be used in a number of research outputs. This research has been approved by the Department of Education Ethics Committee at the University of York.

Hello! My name is Zara Sharif and I am a 2021 Laidlaw Scholar from the University of York, where I study Education!

My research topic looks at body hair and racialized bullying of teenage girls in UK secondary schools, and how this interacts with the relationship between misogyny and racism.

I chose this research topic because I think we are seeing a cultural shift (in some ways) towards a greater acceptance of body hair, but I've found this shift often leaves out women of colour, and ignores how race and gender can intersect to form teenage girls experiences and their relationships with their body, their sense of self and how they perceive themselves. I also want to see how greater society perceive body hair on women of colour in particular and how social media can influence/shape/change these opinions.

Zara, if you don't have enough responses to this survey let me know and we can promote it via the Laidlaw Schools Trust and some other MATs. Such an important topic - good luck with your research project.
