About this event
Brook are piloting a brand new project working with students to talk about all things vulva. Ever had questions about vulva/vaginal health but didn’t know where to get the answers from? Maybe you’re going to talk to other people about vulvas as part of your degree or in your future career and want to be clued up? Perhaps you just love vulvas (like we do) and want to shout about how great they are! Either way if you are 18-25 and have a vulva this hour long, free session is for you.
A recent yougov poll, March 2019, found 45% of women* couldn’t label the vagina correctly and large proportions didn’t understand the functions of different parts of the vulva, missing key knowledge about vaginal health. This session will give students key information which will benefit their health and wellbeing throughout their lives.
Brook is a nationwide charity who supports young people to have healthy lives. This includes sexual health clinical support, education sessions on a host of relationship and sexual health topics, counselling services and professional training. More information about Brook at our website: https://www.brook.org.uk/
This project is being funded by Canesten.
*The project very much recognises that not all women have vulvas, and not everyone with a vulva is a woman. However, this is the best data we have on the general public's vulva knowledge and is useful for context.
