Metro - I’m not surprised women turn to The Goop Lab for advice – but it could be very dangerous


30 January 2020


By Florence Schechter

The Goop Lab is a frustrating show. In each episode, you are graced with 30 minutes of generalised wishy-washy statements encouraging the ‘optimisation of self’, health and wellness treatments that can apparently cure everything from anxiety to nerve damage and a whole lot of crying. They cry about emotional journeys, family issues or just because they stared at each other in the eyes for too long. I’m starting to wonder if Goop employees are paid by the tear.

Guardian - What can we learn from a vagina museum?


13 December 2019


‘There’s nothing wrong with that word: it’s not a dirty word.” Sarah Creed, curator at the Vagina Museum in Camden Market, north London, is ending a story about a gynaecologist friend whose child at nursery was told it was inappropriate to say “vagina”. Obviously I know there is nothing wrong with it. But would I wear a pussy pendant, by the Dutch artist Denise Rosenboom, which are apparently flying off the shelves? Would I have Sam Dawood’s period sculpture in my house? (I can see that this is quite a philistine criterion for appreciating art). Or a model of the vulva, identifying all the parts?

Daily Beast - More Sex Please, We’re British: Inside the World’s First Vagina Museum in London


20 November 2019


LONDON—The Vagina Museum is not only the first museum of its kind in the world. It might also be the most millennial. Once, a museum with this name would have been head-rushingly explicit. Today, it is less pornographic, more prosaic. It is less about titillation than education. It might be about female anatomy, but it is comfortably aligned with clean living, inclusivity, and the social good.

The museum, in Camden, has been two years in the making and was founded by 28-year-old Florence Schechter. In 2017, she heard there was a penis museum in Iceland, but no vagina museum anywhere in the world. “It was like sexism nailed on the head,” she told The Daily Beast. “You couldn’t get more obvious.”

New York Times - There Is a Vagina Museum in London


20 November 2019


Inside the winding alleyways of London’s Camden Market, past walls of combat boots, money exchanges and bustling food vendors, a small white sign announces the presence of the complex’s newest tenant: the Vagina Museum.

On Saturday, during its grand opening, the humble brick space — dedicated to understanding and appreciating the vagina, vulva and gynecological anatomy — was packed, mostly with women but from all generations. I heard visitors exchange confessions like “I didn’t know what a period was until I had one” and “I used to think that all vulvas look the same.” Topics of discussion that are often reduced to hushed tones in public spaces, if they are brought up at all, were thrown around with ease and enthusiasm.

DIVA - What’s it like to be… Director of the world’s first vagina museum?


18 November 2019


Florence Schechter has many job titles. Science communicator, comedian, presenter, video producer… And when she’s not doing all of that? She’s busy building the newly-opened The Vagina Museum. The first one in the world.

In the planning stages since 2017, when Florence realised there was a serious lack of vagina-shaped research out there, The Vagina Museum will take a look at the science and history behind vaginas and their place in culture in an inclusive and intersectional way.

And best of all? It’s now opened its doors to the general pubic… sorry, public. Let’s find out more…

BBC Culture - How vaginas are finally losing their stigma


15 November 2019


In 2017, Florence Schechter discovered that Iceland had a penis museum, but that nowhere in the world could its female equivalent be found. And so, the science communicator decided to do something about it. This month, in London, the Vagina Museum will be born.

In fact, it’s a pretty different proposition to the penis museum. “That’s kind of novelty, penises in jars,” Schechter explains. “We’re going to be much more thoughtful and actually explore the topic.”

VICE - We Asked the Director of the World's First Vagina Museum: Why?


15 November 2019


Say it after me: vagina. Va-gi-na. If you feel an uncomfortable tingle saying the v-word, you’re not alone. The Eve Appeal recently found that 65 percent of young women have a problem using the words vagina and vulva, and nearly 40 percent of 16-25 year olds favour using the kind of code names – “lady bits,” “womanly parts” – your nan uses. Never mind the ins and outs of gynaecological health, turns out we’ve got a long way to go to even saying the word vagina.

Evening Standard - Vagina Museum founder Florence Schechter on body politics, teasing trolls and millennia of marginalisation


14 November 2019


Ask Florence Schechter why she is opening the world’s first bricks-and-mortar vagina museum in Camden Market — naturally — and she will not miss a beat. “Why not?” she shrugs, evenly. “I discovered there’s a penis museum in Iceland, but no vagina equivalent anywhere in the world. And I thought that was bulls***.”

So Schechter did not fanny around. She spent six months workshopping the idea with “people from museums, medical people, random people I knew, saying, ‘Do you think this is something you’d visit?’” She drew up a plan, pitched successfully to some trustees and registered as a charity. “And here we are.”

Mashable - The world's first vagina museum is officially opening


18 September 2019


When Florence Schechter discovered that there's a penis museum in Iceland, but no vagina museum anywhere in the world, she was "pretty miffed." In fact, the only thing that came close was an online vagina museum in Austria.

"There is no physical space wholly dedicated to vaginas and the people who have them," she told me. So, she decided there was only one thing to be done: "Make one."

Schechter set about creating the Vagina Museum back in March 2017. It all started with a pop-up. Two and a half years later, the Vagina Museum will finally open its first brick-and-mortar premises in London's Camden Market.

Vogue - The Vagina Dialogue: How The Vulva Became 2019's Hottest Topic


23 May 2019


I really feel like Harvey Weinstein was the Franz Ferdinand of fourth-wave feminism," Florence Schechter – who is raising funds to open the world’s first Vagina Museum – says wryly over the phone. "#MeToo opened these floodgates.”

 

It’s midday on a Monday afternoon and I’m asking Schechter questions that are gathering momentum right now, tailing a burgeoning vagina movement that appears to be simultaneously profiting off our vulvas and destigmatising them with competing vigour. From a slew of new educative books (Vagina: A Re-Education by Lynn Enright, Hormonal by Eleanor Morgan, What We're Told Not To Talk About by Nimko Ali, The Vagina Bible by Dr Jennifer Gunter), taboo-busting poetry collections and avant-garde stage productions to gold-plated vagina pendants and dubious supplements, vaginas, it would seem, are in fashion. They're "trending". But why now, and where’s the dialogue headed?

Thomson Reuters - World's first vagina museum in London to tackle taboos


15 April 2019


Disco parties, comedy nights, school tours and art exhibitions may be unusual ways to help break the stigma associated with female genitals, but that is exactly what the world's first vagina museum in London plans to do. After learning in 2017 about the existence of Iceland's Phallological Museum, which displays hundreds of penises from animals, Florence Schechter felt it was only fair if there was a physical building that spotlighted female genitals as well.

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. Being able to talk about these topics could not only increase gynecological health but also improve discussions around consent. The question is, how do you start such a conversation? 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”.

The Vagina Museum will be a curation of gynecological studies that are gender inclusive and intersectional.

"I found out there is a penis museum in Iceland, which is pretty cool," Schechter said. "But there was no vagina equivalent anywhere in the world. There's this art gallery in Tasmania, and there's a virtual museum based in Austria. But there was no physical museum that I could go visit, and I thought that was really unfair.

However, things change if we think about vaginas. We’ve all come out from one, but hardly anybody knows how to draw it. And don’t even get us started on how to draw a clitoris.
