Laura Dodsworth - Woomanhood Film Channel 4

Who is C4's Laura Dodsworth? How can you purchase her Womanhood book?

Laura Dodsworth is out to end social and emotional taboos.

You’ll spot Laura on new Channel 4 show 100 Vaginas alongside a wide selection of nude female body parts as the 60-minute documentary airs on Tuesday night (February 19th) at 10 pm.

So who is the groundbreaking photographer? And what is her Womanhood project?

Who is Laura Dodsworth?

Laura is a photographer, author and artist from the UK.

She has three books to her name, all specialising in the physical human form and the emotional connections we and others have with them.

Her books are; 100 women, their breasts, their stories, Manhood: The Bare Reality and Womanhood: The Bare Reality.

Womanhood is released later this month, following the Channel 4 documentary.

Laura’s website outlines the book by saying:

From smooth Barbie dolls to internet porn, girls and women grow up with a very narrow view of what they should look like, even though in reality there is an enormous range. Womanhood departs from the ‘ideal vagina’ and presents the gentle un-airbrushed truth, allowing us to understand and celebrate our diversity.

For the first time, 100 brave and beautiful women reveal their bodies and stories on their own terms, talking about how they feel about pleasure, sex, pain, trauma, birth, motherhood, menstruation, menopause, gender, sexuality and simply being a woman.

You can pre-order the book from Amazone here for £14.99 (paperback edition).

There are also options to purchase all three of Laura’s books for a cut-price at £41.95.

100 Vaginas Documentary

Both Laura’s work and Channel 4’s 100 Vaginas documentary have been considered revolutionary, as they explore the female body parts in their real and non-sexual forms.

In the Channel 4 documentary, viewers will see never-seen-before close-up shots which include giving birth and masturbating.

Laura said:

It’s like nothing I’ve seen on TV before. I think it should be compulsory viewing in schools.

You can watch the documentary on Channel 4 at 10 pm on Tuesday night (February 19th).

If you miss the episode then it is likely to feature on the official Channel 4 media player, ALL4, shortly after airing.
