Woman letting her beard grow for Movember

MEN aren't the only ones taking part in this month's Movember charity campaign - women too are showing their support for men's health issues by ditching the wax, bleach and tweezers and growing their facial hair.

Losa Morrison, a 28-year-old student from Brisbane, says she normally needs to shave every day but is facing her fears and growing a beard to raise awareness and funds.

"I've been growing my facial hair for Movember for the past five days and I already have a goatee," says Morrison.

"My facial hair is pretty obvious and I've decided to try and break some social boundaries by revealing this embarrassing feature."

Morrison says she was inspired to take part in Movember because of her father's struggle with mental illness.
