The more I spoke about feminism, the more I realized that fighting for women’s rights has too often become synonymous with man-hating. If there is one thing I know for certain is that this has to stop. For the record, feminism by definition is the belief that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities. It is the theory of political, economic and social equality of the sexes. […] You might think: who is this Harry Potter girl? What is she doing at the UN? I’ve been asking myself at the same thing. All I know is that I care about this problem and I want to make this better. And having seen what I’ve seen and given the chance, I feel my responsibility to say something.
Consumer watchdog groups are certain that it would not be.
“When you put two bad companies together, they don’t remain equally bad. They get worse,” said Harold Feld of Public Knowledge, a consumer advocacy group. “And there’s a multiplier effect. Instead of just bad plus bad, you get badness squared.”
Besides being the greatest pun ever, "The Great Wall of Vagina" is a 10-panel polyptych series by British artist Jamie McCartney made up of 400 molds of the vaginas of 400 different women.
The women depicted ranged in age from 18 to 76 and included women who had given birth, had vaginal piercings, were virgins, were twins, and transgendered women.
This piece of artwork literally changed my life when I saw it for the first time about three years ago.
Both women and men in most cultures generally aren’t exposed to images of vaginas nearly to the same degree as we are images of penises. Even if you actively seek out images of vaginas, usually through pornography, the vaginas you do see are plucked and shrunken minority representations of our gender. I was always very concerned and insecure of the fact that because my vagina wasn’t “porn-worthy”, it was a deformity. Beyond being completely captivated and wanting to stare at it for hours, I was so relieved when I saw McCartney’s work. Vaginas are fascinatingly freakish individuals.
