While most of us dream about bumping into our personal heroes, few of us would be prepared to make a lasting impression on them. Not Swoon, however. The artist recently met women’s rights icon Gloria Steinem and handed her the perfect gift: a ring depicting the female clitorus (Note: this not the same thing as a clit ring).
OMG I just met Gloria Steinem! So I have her this gift. My friends just made this ring which represents…. disclaimer: it's about to get graphic y'all – the internal clitoris. Raise your hand if you have any idea how actually massive the clitoris is? The little nubbin we are all so familiar with is just the tip, the full thing carries on well inside the body and is quite huge. Who knew? Turns out basically nobody did, till like the 90's. So anyhow @penelopijones have made a ring which anatomically maps the beauty in it's entirety – and when I found myself at a table with Gloria Steinem I took mine right off my finger and have it to her. Thanks lady hero!
It’s insane that humans traveled to the moon, created the internet and became addicted to BuzzFeed quizzes all before we understood what the inside of a woman’s clit really looked like. The ring aims to bring awareness of the sensitive and complex anatomical structure. Here are more of the rings, by PenelopiJones.
