Summary/Abstract: When an instagramer, Morgan Mikenas, published photographs showing her with lush body hair, and Polish entertainment websites shared them, the Internet users from Poland reacted vividly. The responses are a subject of the article. They are collated with Lynda Nead’s, Christine Hope’s and Virginia Wolf’s arguments as well as with the idea of selfie-feminism to show what kind of struggle must be undertook by women to defend their right to decide on her own appearance.
