Book That Should Have Been Titled Vagina Reissued 17 Years Later
In 2003, Catherine Blackledge published The Story of V, having lost the battle to have her informative history of the vagina book titled Vagina. Times have changed enough that the reissue couldn’t be titled Vagina, because it would have gotten lost amongst similarly titled books, so instead Blackledge settled on Raising the Skirt: The Unsung Power of the Vagina–that new cover, I screamed! The Guardian has a great piece on why the book was originally written, a look at the author, changes since, and the reissue.
