The Vulva Gallery: Normalizing the female form one animated vulva at a time

Illustrator Hilde Atalanta has created a magical space (and is the primary artist) of the vulva gallery a digital space celebrating vulvas in all of their beautifully unique forms. 

Recently featured in Huffington Posts her mission is simple: 

“The only way to change the way [...] individuals experience their bodies is to educate them, and others, about the natural diversity,”
— Hilde Atalanta

She further goes on to clearly define the difference between the over used "vagina" term for female genitalia giving the less commonly loved "vulva" the love she deserves.

The vulva consists of the external part of the female genital organs: the mons pubis, the labia majora and labia minora, the clitoris and the clitoral hood, the bulb of vestibule, the vulval vestibule, urinary meatus, greater and lesser vestibular glands, the vaginal opening, the pudendal cleft, sebaceous glands, the urogenital triangle (anterior part of the perineum), and pubic hair. I think we shouldn’t reduce the vulva just to its birth canal, when there’s so much more to it than that!
— Hilde Atalanta
