I, Woman

by Aki Schilz

I’m thrilled that a poem of mine, ‘I, Woman’, has been featured as part of The Vagina Project, an international online initiative encouraging women to create art around the subject of the female vagina; as a word, a concept, a semantic conundrum, a political statement, a personal narrative, a commentary on gender, a component of and tool for discussion around feminist and gender-related ideas.

You can read my poem on the website and see the other contributions to the project here. Please note, the header image is strictly NSFW (Not Suitable for Work) so I have posted the poem below. Please do however find a moment to browse the project’s homepage when you can, You can also read more and join the discussion on their Facebook page here.

I, woman.
