Blaise Benghiat

Have you ever felt embarrassed faced with a woman who has let her body hair grow? As a woman yourself, do you feel like you have to wax or shave to remove body hair? Blaise has not been able to comply with most of these sorts of gender-related codes of conduct imposed by our society. To get by, she has chosen instead an “extra-ordinary” outer appearance, which has sometimes been judged by others as looking like a man.
