Vagina : a re-education / Lynn Enright.

Enright, Lynn, (author.).


From earliest childhood, girls are misled about their bodies, encouraged to describe their genitalia with cute and silly names rather than anatomically correct terms. Girls grow up feeling ashamed about their periods; they grow up without a full and honest sex education. Enright provides girls and women with information they need about their own bodies: about the vagina, the hymen, the clitoris, the orgasm; about conditions like endometriosis and vulvodynia. She confronts taboos, such as abortion, miscarriage, infertility, masturbation, female genital mutilation and the rights of transgender women. -- adapted from back cover
