Women Protest in Pyjamas, Tell Men to "Shave in the Evening OR Crave".

Tamil Nadu, Nov. 26 -- In Support of the 'WOES' movement i.e. Women Oppose Evening Stubble' initiated by Malaika Arora Khan & Neha Dhupia in early November,women in Chennai led by Dipika Pallikal protest against men like Arbaaz Khan who sport an evening stubble by demanding that they shave or else all women will wear only pyjamas in the evening

The WOES survey was conducted among 1500 people of which 1000 were women and 500 were men in 10 Indian cities; namely Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Ahmadabad, Bangalore, Indore, Nagpur and Lucknow. The survey was undertaken to understand the impact of the evening stubble on the level of intimacy shared by a couple and revealed startling insights like 87% of women like their men clean shaven before a dinner night out. Women were asked to join the "Women Oppose Evening Stubble" movement by following the 'Shave or Crave' mandates if their men didn't shave

1. "We will wear pyjamas and not spend our evenings with you, if you don't shave in the evenings "

2. "If you are clean shaven in the evening, we will make you feel special."

Following the mandates, this movement was taken forward in Chennai, on the 22nd November 2012 where beautiful Dipika Pallikal led a group of Pyjama clad women while demanding that their men shave in the evening too.

The women protest group convinced Bollywood Megastar Arbaaz Khan to shave in the evenings too. Soon a debate followed which revealed that women will not appear perfectly groomed by wearing only pyjamas in the evening if men do not make an effort to shave for them every evening.

Gillette came forward with a solution for men by introducing the new Gillette Fusion Gamer, Gillette's best shaving technology with a 5 blade suspension, which will allow men in India to experience the Most Comfortable Shave at an affordable price of Rs 299/-. So now men will no longer have an excuse to not shave both in the morning and evening.

Actor Dipika Pallikal said, "In spite of several requests men fail to understand the importance of being well groomed in the evenings as well especially since women make an effort for their menEvenings are important to us because that is the time our men spend with us. If they can shave in the morning for their boss, why can't they do it for us? It clearly shows that they don't care enough.I urge women everywhere who feel the same way to make to also not make an effort for their men and protest by wearing only Pyjamas in the evening if their men don't shave off their evening stubble.if

Dipika Pallikal also substantiated this by stating the survey results from the Nielsen India study. The study claimed that:

77% of women in Chennai feel special when their Husband / Boyfriend Shaves for Them in the Evening~

82% of women believe that a man shaves before work because he cares more about what his boss thinks than what she needs~

88% of young women feel special when their boyfriend shaves for them in the evening~

*Claims generated from men and women who were in agreement with the above statements by a Nielsen survey done across 10 cities in October 2012 and the above are a few excerpts picked up from the survey findings

Agreeing with Pyjama Protest, Arbaaz Khan agreed to shave on stage with a Gillette Fusion Gamer razor and said; "If me being clean shaven in the evening makes my woman feel special, I will definitely start shaving off my evening stubble to show her I care.

Especially as there is now no excuse for men not to shave in the evening since we now have the best in shaving technology with Fusion Gamer which is so gentle on skin that you can shave twice a day without any irritation. .I also feel men should be clean shaven not just for someone but also because being well groomed makes one feel good about oneself

Dipika Pallikal thanked Arbaaz Khan for his efforts to shave saying, "I am extremely delighted that Arbaaz has decided to be clean shaven in the evenings too and urge men across the nation to do the same thing. This small gesture will make your women feel special and express your love and gratitude for all the effort she takes to be groomed all the time".
