Removal of Beard for Women

Is it permissible for a woman to remove her beard?

The Sunnah of Nabi Muhammad ﷺ is for men to grow their beard. If a woman has a beard, she has the permission to remove it.

It says in Fataawa al-Lajnah al-Daa’imah:

There is no sin on a woman if she removes hair on her upper lip, thighs, calves and arms. This is not part of the tanammus (plucking) that is forbidden.[1]
