Womanhood: The Bare Reality is a collection of photographs and stories that explores the gentle un-airbrushed truth of women’s sexuality and with their stories of pleasure, sex, pain, trauma, birth, motherhood, menstruation, menopause and gender identity. For Laura Dodsworth, author and photographer, this book is the final installment of a unique trilogy which includes Manhood: The Bare Reality and Bare Reality: 100 Women, Their Breasts, Their Stories. Her work was featured in a Channel 4 documentary – 100 Vaginas.
Actor, comedian and activist, Tara Flynn will be in conversation with Laura to discuss the very complicated relationships we have with our bodies.
“The vulva stories Dodsworth has collected made me laugh and cry, moved by the openness with which each person talks about sexual liberation, grief, loss, abuse and everything in between. The very fact that vulvas feel so controversial to look at underlines the power of the project.”
