Vaginas. Half of the population have them, but it seems you're not allowed to print pictures of them, in a non-sexual way, and that's been causing outrage at the University of Sydney. Its student newspaper Honi Soit has been removed from distribution because the front cover showed images of student's vaginas. A selection of university students volunteered to have their vaginas photographed for the front cover in an effort to dispel ideas among women about what they look like. The newspaper's staff felt too many women compared themselves to porn stars and not to real women. The Feed's Jeannette Francis looks at the fallout from the controversy.


The Feed airs weeknights at 19:30 on SBS 2. You can also follow The Feed on Twitter at @TheFeedSBS2, or 'LIKE' SBS 2 on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/SBS2Australia) to stay in the loop.
