The Creole Gallery in north Lansing is asking for entries to a juried art exhibition called The Vagina Show.
Women riled over last month’s silencing of a female Democratic lawmaker who said “vagina” during a House debate about anti-abortion legislation and another who said “vasectomy” are pushing back at what they say is a war on women.
“They want to silence women on it. I absolutely think this is about a war on women, ” said State Rep. Lisa Brown, who was barred from speaking in the Michigan House after using the word “vagina” during a debate over anti-abortion legislation.
A Facebook page created for the “Vaginas Take Back The Capitol” event sponsored by Michigan Senate Democrats had 3,268 RSVPs by Monday morning.
