There is a penis museum in Iceland but no vagina equivalent. Why is that? Upset at this inequality, Florence is making one and talks through why we need one in the first place, her experiences researching vaginas, vulvas and all parts related, the highs and lows, what would go in a museum about the gynaecological anatomy and the wonderful and strange reactions she's got making the world's first physical vagina museum.

The museum will have four permanent galleries: science, culture, society and history. The science section will cover topics from the anatomy to health, menstruation to menopause, contraception to consent, sexuality to gender identity. The culture collection will showcase the anatomy in the arts and their contribution to the discourse about our genitals, for example The Great Wall of Vagina or The Handmaid’s Tale. The society gallery will explore genitals’ place in society, e.g. religious rites surrounding menstruation, the practises of FGM, of which over 200 million people are living today suffering from, sexual violence and how these cases are dealt with in court. The history gallery will contain objects relating to the history of gynaecological medicine, contraception, menstrual products, sex work, of the erasure and oppression of women and the LGBTI community and the history of feminism.

Florence Schechter is a science communicator and founder of the world's first physical vagina museum. She is opening the vagina museum in UK and has been shortlisted for a Women of the Future Award 2017 in the arts and culture category for her work. She has performed across the country at the Science Museum Lates, Royal Society, British Science Festival, Cheltenham Science Festival, BlueDot Festival, to name a few. Her science YouTube channel has over one million views.
