Film: Shaving my head for Womankind Worldwide

 In Feminism, Journal

Back in 2012 I shaved my head to raise money and awareness for the charity Womankind Worldwide. The footage was somewhat held hostage for over a year by the filmmaker. We managed to get some of it, and my friend Philippa Young from What Took You So Long, kindly edited it together. Enjoy!
