Book of Choice: “The Vagina Bible: The Vulva and the Vagina – Separating the Myth From the Medicine” by Jen Gunter, MD
Book Description: With a frank yet informative style, Jen Gunter debunks the pseudoscience behind everything from vaginal health issues to its related commercial products, such as bath bombs. The Vagina Bible can offer you the real lowdown on this sensitive topic through a scientific lens that is easy to understand.
Why did you choose this book? “Some of the anecdotal stories included in The Vagina Bible describe myths that are truly astounding in their reasoning. These myths illustrate a larger story at stake which is that women have historically lacked access to accurate information to support their health and wellness decisions,” said Barnhart.
