Hello-
this may sound a little strange, but I was wondering if anyone could tell me if the social attitude of female bodyhair (as in hairy legs and underarms) is generally one of acceptance in Quebecois culture?
I know that modern-day Quebec differs greatly from France, but I was wondering if that may have been one cultural aspect that was carried over.
I hope this doesn't offend anyone- I'm just a woman who is curious!

thanks in advance for any help!

The usual practice with respect to female body hair in Quebec is the same as in the rest of North America (and pretty much always has been).

Note that the practice in France is now for the most part basically the same as in North America, though this is a change that has taken hold over the past 10 or 20 years or so I'd say.
