Vagina Dispatches


Think you know about vaginas? Think again. In this four-part series for The Guardian, Mona Chalabi and Mae Ryan find out that even the most basic of body knowledge is lacking – many people still don’t understand what vaginas look like or how they function. The series explores a range of topics from labiaplasty to the orgasm gap and the consequences of stopping menstruation. Over a million viewers watched the series on The Guardian and other social networks.
