5.0 out of 5 stars Accessible and thought-provoking
This book is thoughtful and insightful, asking whether women can reclaim the anatomically accurate 'c-word' in place of the arguably sexist term vagina without connotations of vulgarity and disgust.

To explore this idea, Rees considers various cultural and artistic representations of the vagina, from literature to performance art, Frida Kahlo to South Park...

This review is from: The Vagina: A Literary and Cultural History (Hardcover)
This book is thoughtful and insightful, asking whether women can reclaim the anatomically accurate 'c-word' in place of the arguably sexist term vagina without connotations of vulgarity and disgust.

To explore this idea, Rees considers various cultural and artistic representations of the vagina, from literature to performance art, Frida Kahlo to South Park. Witty and intelligent, the author never seeks to patronise or preach but puts across her passion for the subject eloquently.

An accessible book, this is a must for anyone with even a passing interest in the subject.
