Jessica Ledwich has created a photo series exploring everyday beauty rituals for women.

This project, entitled 'The Fanciful, Monstrous Feminine' explores these rituals from a morbid, feminist perspective.

The images are pretty gruesome - from an image of a woman 'buffering' her legs to an image of body parts for sale - but they do raise an interesting point. Ledwich wants to shed light on the fact that, throughout much of our history, we have defined a woman's body based on sexuality and its "threatening" characteristics.

Take a look at this shocking series below.

Probably one of the most powerful images, especially considering today's plastic surgery culture.

As a woman, I would like to point out that waxing pretty much does feel like that.

 What do you think of this series?
