QUOTE OF THE DAY: ‘Bodies With Vaginas’

In a landmark for transgender rights, the Lancet medical journal published a new term for women’s bodies on its September cover.


The Lancet, a leading general medical journal based in the U.K., dedicated the entire front page to a quotation that included the gender-neutral term.

The quote was pulled from Lancet senior editor Sophia Davis’ review of a menstruation exhibition at London’s Vagina Museum, published inside the Sept. 1 edition of the Lancet.

  • “Historically, the anatomy and physiology of bodies with vaginas have been neglected — for example, the paucity in understanding of endometriosis and the way women’s pain has been seen as more likely to have an emotional or psychological cause, a hangover from centuries of theorising about hysteria,” Davis wrote.


Earlier this month, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., seemed to struggle to consistently use the preferred gender-neutral terminology when denouncing Texas’ abortion ban on CNN.
