This Important Video Reminds the World That "Vagina" Is Not a Dirty Word

Look in a mirror and say it out loud.

Look in a mirror and say it out loud.


Vajayjay. Cooch. "Down there." These are all euphemisms that the women (and men) behind Legalize V, a campaign to promote the unabashed use of the word "vagina," wouldn’t mind never hearing again. Their mission, they say, is simple: The word "vagina" is still viewed as vulgar or offensive, in spite of the fact that it is "a powerful tool with which women can take ownership of their bodies, their sexuality, their health, their overall well-being, and even their safety," as they write on their site
[post_ads_2]
The taboo of the word limits our talks with our friends, our conversations with our doctors, and even discussion in government, where laws that affect us and our anatomy are made — Mission V points out that just four years ago, Michigan State Representative Lisa Brown was banned from speaking after using the word "vagina" on the House floor. Check out the campaign’s video above, then click through to the Legalize V site to get involved. (The first action item they recommend: looking in the mirror and saying the word "vagina" to yourself. Go ahead, try it.)
