Japanese Artist Megumi Igarashi was arrested for sending 3D modeling data of her vulva. The charge: distributing obscene materials electronically.

This is just another example of the continued assault on the female sex organ. The vulva is censored at every turn. Megumi denied all charges adding the she doesn't "acknowledge the work is an obscenity". In a country where the female anatomy is "overly hidden" she "did not know what a pussy should look like".

We see in again and again in the workshops. Genital Show & Tell (where we all look at each other's vulvas) liberates the women in a way I can't fully express. They get to see exactly what pussies look like, that there is a range of vulva styles. In that moment, they're healed.
