Men have "Movember," in which they grow mustaches during the month of November to raise awareness for prostate and testicular cancer, but what do women have? Surely bra- and purse-related Facebook status updates are not enough, so feminist website Feministing.com recommends "Decembrow." The idea: Women grow unibrows (or fake the look using an eyebrow pencil) to raise awareness for the cause of their choice, the Daily Caller reports.

The CEO of Concerned Women for America notes that it's "curious that feminists would choose to embrace facial hair" and says she wonders "how that is different than any other month of the year." Author Erica Jong, meanwhile, supports the idea of female power, but wishes the method didn't focus on appearance. "But whatthehey," she concludes. "Let’s do it to garner attention and show that we’re still here and still want true equality rather than scraps."
