The Vagina – a literary and cultural history

Tickets are still available for Emma Rees’ talk on Vulvanomics, exploring her new book, The Vagina: A Literary and Cultural History. The talk takes place at Waterside 3 on Sunday 15 March.

Book your tickets now.

In her new book, academic Emma Rees considers why British and US culture has such a problem when talking about the female body. She maps the long history of advertising that profits from the taboo of the vagina, and she reflects on how writers, artists and filmmakers have been influenced by, or even perpetuate, this ‘shame’.  And it’s not all in the past – the vagina still causes outrage, derision and discomfort today.
