I’m fascinated by the idea that a woman can embrace the hair on her face and make it work for her. Artist Jennifer Miller performs with a NY circus troupe called Circus Amok, of which she’s the founder and director. A performance artist whose photograph appeared in Annie Leibovitz’s book Women, Miller sports a full beard that is about three inches long. She calls herself “a woman with a beard, not a bearded lady.”

See the article about Jennifer posted on the Circus Amok website.

Another of my favorite bearded ladies is the character Lila from the wonderful (and missed) HBO series Carnivale.
