Labia pride is a feminist movement which aims to raise awareness of the appearance of female genitalia and break the taboos surrounding the vulva. The name emphasizes the labia , as the trend towards cosmetic surgery on the female genitals labiaplasty , also known as "designer vagina" has left many women insecure about the size and appearance of their labia. The campaigns want to educate, empower and raise critical awareness about natural genital variation. Women and also men should develop a more positive attitude towards all forms of the vulva. The vulva should be seen as a normal part of the body that does not need to be hidden and made taboo. Women should not be ashamed of their vulva and should feel comfortable with it overall.
