Undies with Women’s Internal Anatomy – Who is Giving Whom A Lesson in Biology?

Holy Hormones Journal:

Although this young feminist is not planning on selling her artwork as an underline – I still had to ask the question – who would be really getting the biology lesson? Imagine if women were able to purchase a line of undies like this – they would learn… and where them proudly…but the men in their lives – who are just as clueless about women’s biology – would really benefit from the artful undies. Not only would women be more respectful of their bodies – but men might be as well – instead of shooting into the dark.

Feminist artistic underwear gives a biology lesson in women’s internal anatomy

British student Eleanor Haswell has created a graphic underwear set depicting the internal female anatomy as a feminist art project to highlight society’s 03.13.15 underwear-artproblems with body image, body shaming and domestic violence.

The 18-year-old art student from north-east England is on a mission to make women stand up and take notice of their own bodies and came up with her anatomically correct undies for her project Why Are You So Afraid Of Your Own Anatomy?.

The matching bra and pants set could teach the world a biology lesson on women’s intimate parts – a graphic insight into breasts and vaginas. However, Haswell’s unique set is not for sale as it’s solely a piece of art.

“There’s been a lot of people requesting for me to sell them, but my intentions weren’t to market the underwear,” she told The Independent.

“I’m pleased that they have received this much attention.”

Haswell’s work in general, mainly photography-based, covers many feminist subjects. “I have tried to use current issues within my work to address the problems in society. I chose body shaming as there are so many comments constantly being made about women who choose to have body hair, branding it as unnatural and disgusting.”
