New York artist Sophia Wallace wants us — and everyone you know — to be cliterate.
“It’s appalling and shocking to think that scientifically, the clitoris was only discovered in 1998,” Wallace told The Huffington Post from her Brooklyn studio last week. “But really, it may as well have never been discovered at all because there’s still such ignorance when it comes to the female body.”
The clitoris, described as the only human body part that exists solely for pleasure, is not merely a little “button” hidden between a woman’s legs, but rather a large, mostly internal organ many people don’t know about, Wallace explains.
Wallace’s art project is a little bit “too American” to my taste, but it is definitely worth attention as makes a lot for the awarness and change our attitude on female sexuality as well as our information about our own bodies. Read the whole The Huffington Post article on the Cliteracy project!
