Welcome

Welcome to The Vagina Project!

The Vagina Project is a gallery of original artwork from around the world.

These are vaginas, each with its own personal message. Often their messages are responses to what has been said about and done to them and to the women they belong to as a a result of politics, policies, and cultural norms around the world. Other times, their messages convey an honesty about personal, but not political, experiences of the vagina.

These artworks give voice to a part of the body often associated with shame, fear, and filth. We choose, however, not to walk away defeated and with picket signs dragging behind us. Instead, we choose to take matters into our own hands. Vagina is not a dirty word, and our vaginas will not be shamed. They will, instead, be seen and heard.

We are taking part in an important movement in feminism and in art, a movement that has worked for a long time to de-stigmatize and de-politicize the vagina. This movement is not new (think: Vagina Monologues, Judy Chicago, Riot Grrrls, and so on), but must continue.
