The little progress status counter has gone past 40, so I figure it’s time for another little update.
Things are progressing steadily, ten more photos, a bit more graffitti, and another few vagina stories on the blog here.
You can also keep an eye on the FB event page, I tend to post stories there as they come in, besides other people posting interesting related material.
I’m still looking for some more age/colour/race diversity, so feel free to pass the info on to whomever you think might like to get involved.
Interesting isn’t it. This is not something that most people feel comfortable talking about to their parents or grandparents. Though I have my mothers blessings for the project she is conveniently located in Sydney so I have not had to face that one directly myself. I think there is a part of me which assumes that older women might be less inclined to want to participate. Why would I think that ?
Well, I have faith that the diversity will come, 60% of the photographic work is still to be done, so there is still plenty of time.
Dear Vaginas :)
Over 30% of the photographic work is now done !
I have noticed that all the women who have participated so far have been white, white, white and mainly in their 20’s to 30’s. I would love it if some colour, culture and age variation were represented.
So, if you have some lovely darker skin, come from a non-anglo/european culture or have a few more years under your belt, or if you know someone who does who you think might be interested in getting involved then please get in touch or pass it on.
But don’t be put off if you are young and white, I’m not closing the door to anyone, just putting a call for diversity out there.
Also, even if you have not been or do not want to be photographed, you are very welcome to share a vagina story on the blog: http://www.101vagina.com/category/vagina-stories/
In other news I have now heard of two examples of “101vagina.com” appearing as graffiti in women’s toilets :) I’m loving the “life of it’s own” this project is getting.
Here it is in the womens toilet at the Espy :)
