101 Vagina Book
Philip Werner
From 'Vagina 101 Book'

*In association with Fringe Festival
"This journey started for me in 2007 when I read the Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler. It brought home to 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, and I believe sexual abuse is also related to these sexual taboos. I felt compelled to do 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." Philip Werner
