Forbes - The World's First Vagina Museum Encourages Conversation Around Gynecological Health
A few years ago, gynecological cancer charity Eve Appeal surveyed women aged 16-25 and found that 65% of them had trouble using the words “vagina” and “vulva”, and some even avoided seeking medical help for gynecological issues because they found it too embarrassing.

Science communicator Florence Schechter is the founder of the Vagina Museum, which has as part of its mission to “raise awareness of the gynecological anatomy and health”.
