Vagina 101

101 Vagina Book Exhibition

This journey started for me when I read The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler while traveling in 2007. It brought home for me how debilitating the taboo and shame around vaginas can be on a personal and societal level. The huge increase in women and girls seeking labiaplasty is one manifestation of this. After encountering so much insecurity in women about their bodies I felt compelled to do something about it, something that says I’m OK and you’re OK. 101 Vagina is a direct action against the lies we are told about what’s normal and where beauty lies.
