words matter.
let us tell you why.

As far as words go, “vagina” has been through a lot. It’s been labeled inappropriate, vulgar, offensive, profane. Here’s the truth—the word “vagina” is none of those things. It’s a powerful and important word which lets women take ownership of their bodies, their sexuality, and even their safety.
