I feel that movements like The Vulva Gallery, that celebrate our body diversity, are essential. I would have never taken part in a portrait of this sort without the education and self-acceptance brought on by seeing other female bodies in a non-sexualised manner. Immersing myself in empowering female artwork over the last year has done more for my mental health and self-worth than anything before.
I encourage anyone that thinks it might be fun to get involved - either by joining a movement as safe and supportive as this, or creating your own (even/ESPECIALLY if you’d never considered yourself artistic before!).
