VULVANOMICS is the 4th activist event organized by the New View Campaign to challenge Female Genital Cosmetic Surgery (FGCS).

The events of Vulvanomics are:

  • An online-petition which gathered over 900 signatures. See original petition HERE.
  • A 10 minute Satirical Video, “Dr. Vajayjay! Privatise those Privates!” which you can see HERE.
  • Download the Study Guide PDF for the video HERE.
  • A one-day “Flash Activism” event of community based photography of FGCS surgeon’s offices. You can see a collage of the photos HERE.
  • We have prepared a 2011 resource list of up-to date statistics, recent journalism about FGCS, and books that show the wide range of female genitalia in a respectful, celebratory, and artistic manner. 

2011 is the 4th year the New View has conducted activism to challenge the growth of Female Genital Cosmetic Surgery.

  • In 2008, we held a street demonstration and put together resource information including journalism, statistics, NYC FGCS surgeons, endorsers of our action, letters we wrote to professional and government agencies, and a final report of the event, including photos.
  • In 2009 we organized a 2-day gallery event, “Vulvagraphics,” displaying vulva photographs, art, video, and crafts. We also prepared resources and a final report, with photos, available here.
  • In 2010 we organized a counter-conference, “Framing The Vulva,” in Las Vegas, to examine many aspects of the FGCS industry and culture. Here is the final report, links to lecture videos, and more.
