The New Feminist Fashion

Posted on | July 21, 2014 | 52 Comments

Feminist artist Eleanor Beth Haswell (@Elle_Haswell) has designed what the fashionable Women’s Studies major will be wearing:

Art student Eleanor Beth Haswell’s ‘Why are you so afraid of your own anatomy?’ collection is all about the vagina knickers.
Haswell’s undies . . . are a true celebration of the female anatomy and come complete with an annotated diagram of said lady parts, demonstrating exactly where everything — from the fallopian tube to the cervix — actually is.
The designer-turned-gynaecologist also created a bra to go with her knickers making the ultimate matching set.

See, ladies? If you’re not parading your vagina around in public, you’re “afraid of your own anatomy,” according to feminism.

Let’s read the “about” page at Eleanor Beth Haswell’s web site:

Eleanor Beth Haswell is an eighteen year old art student from North East England, who previously studied Fine Art and Graphic Design at Durham Sixth Form Centre and is going on to start Sunderland University and complete the Foundation Degree in Art and Design. Her work is mainly photography based, covering feminist issues such as body shaming in the media, as well as her previous project on domestic violence. Prior to this, Eleanor also created a project based around the cruelty to animals within the cosmetic and fur industry, to which she made a series of advertisements showing the unseen effects. She highlights mainly upon the negative views of body hair within her work, and the perception of beauty that the medias imprints within society today.
Out of education, she runs a North East England female identified arts collective named Clandestine Collective, of which she is also the logo/poster designer.

“Female-identified,” huh? From the collective’s Twitter account:

Feminists obsessed with female genitalia, which they are not afraid to proclaim “good enough to eat”? Yeah, there’s a word for that.

UPDATE: Twitchy’s having a blast with this:
