Vagina Museum to Spread Awareness About Female Anatomy
A Vagina Museum was opened
in Chalk Farm Road in London this month, known to be the first of its kind in the world,
to create awareness about female anatomy and to demolish myths about vaginas,
vulvas and gynecological anatomy.
The mission of the founder 28 year old Florence Schechter, Director and Sarah Creed, Curator, Zoe Williams, Marketing Manager is to spread knowledge and raise awareness of the gynecological anatomy and health. It has nothing to do with pornography, sensationalism or titillation and allows entry for men too. Her inspiration to start the museum was the Penis Museum of Iceland which she first came to know about in 2017.
Among the other objectives of the Museum is to erase the stigma around the woman's body and give confidence to people to talk about gynecological anatomy, to act as a forum for feminism, women's rights, the LGBT +community and the intersex community.
