A Vagina Museum, aiming to take a holistic view of vaginas, the variety of people and animals who have them, and their place in culture, may be coming to London.

It's an unusual concept, but interesting nevertheless. The founder of the Vagina Museum, Florence Schechter, is also a science YouTuber; for one of her videos she was researching 'Top 10 Animal Vaginas' but she simply couldn't find any information. There just isn't enough vagina research out there, it seems; and while there's a penis museum but no vagina museum. Now that just isn't on, talk about equality.

"What is the only way to address this lack of vagina representation? Make your own vagina museum," she says.

The museum is not yet up and running but it's a work in process and will most likely be based in London, UK.

It'll take a holistic view of vaginas, and they intend to make the museum engaging and ensure visitors and the public can get involved in a range of ways. They will have four free permanent galleries; science, culture, society and history, including a gift shop, cafe, and a community outreach programme to shine a light on what it means to be homeless and a female. 

There will also be sexual assault survivors around and even workshops and events such feminist comedy nights, theatre, dance, concerts, art, quizzes, live drawings and basically anything else they can think of that will make their museum stand out just a little bit more amongst the others in London.

Phoenix by @kate.eggleston ... From the artist: Phoenix, 2016 mixed media soft sculpture Phoenix is a mixed media soft sculpture mounted on canvas. She celebrates the hidden power in all women; we can be our own superheroines. Kate Eggleston uses found objects, textiles, and homespun techniques to create sculptural caricatures of her personal experiences. Her work is a buffet of joy, anxiety, and passion for the viewer to feast upon. Eggleston's latest obsession is indigo shibori, which is currently seeping into all aspects of her artistic practice. Eggleston received her BA in Visual Art from Ramapo College of NJ in 2005. She attended artist residencies at _gaia studio (Wonder Women 9: Superfood) in 2015, the Tyler School of Art at Temple University (Summer Sculpture Intensive) in 2012, and completed the Creative Capital Blended Learning Professional Development Program for NJ Artists in 2016. Eggleston frequently shows her work and teaches art throughout the state with concentrations in Trenton, Jersey City, Newark, and Monmouth County. She lives and works in New Jersey with her family.
