Lynn Enright is a journalist for Vogue, Guardian, Evening Standard, BuzzFeed, Grazia and Stylist, and will be in the shop talking about Vagina: A Re-Education – her first book.
From childhood, those with vagina’s are misled about their bodies, encouraged to describe their genitalia with silly names rather than the correct terms. Growing up they often feel ashamed about periods, the appearance of their vulvas, their own desires, and without a full and honest sex education. This lack of knowledge has serious consequences: UK cervical screening appointments are at a 20yr low while labiaplasty is the fastest growing type of plastic surgery in the world. Lynn’s book provides those with vagina’s with info about their bodies, about medical conditions, and confronts taboos. It tackles the social issues of period poverty, FGM and trans rights.
