“When I went to Berlin, I saw an ad about shaving, like the Brazilian waxing, which is very famous in the United States too. It’s the idea that you're going to remove all your hair in the name of beauty standards. The hair is there for some reason, probably protection, so what is it that makes us go through that procedure? What kind of pressure are we responding to when we do things like that?

You can also celebrate the beauty of Brazilian women per se, but not without forgetting the legacies of slavery and colonization and what that meant for Brazilians and for women in particular."
