Supermodel and social media influencer Emily Ratajkowski, who is known for sharing her bold pictures, is now making headlines for all the right reasons. In the latest photoshoot, she is giving out a powerful message. Taking to Instagram, she shared her picture with her arms lifted up, flaunting her armpit hair proudly. Dressed in a black bikini, she teamed up her look with subtle makeup, smokey eyes and a pair of statement earrings.

Sharing the post, she wrote, “Give women the opportunity to be whatever they want and as multifaceted as they can be.” I wrote an essay for @harpersbazaarus about the importance of women’s right to choose (how she dresses, what she posts, if she decides to shave or not) no matter what influences have shaped the way she presents herself. Do your thing ladies, whatever it might be. Link in bio. (sic)”

The picture is a part of a personal essay that she wrote on feminism for the fashion magazine’s September issue.
