Lancet editor-in-chief addresses that cover calling women 'bodies with vaginas'

They’ll say they’re not erasing women, they’re just encouraging you not to use the word “woman.” We’ve heard women described as “menstruators,” “vulva owners,” “birthing people,” and now, thanks to the medical journal The Lancet, “bodies with vaginas.” Check out the cover of its latest edition, featuring coverage of “the cultural movement against menstrual shame and #PeriodPoverty.”

The backlash was profound, enough to move Lancet editor-in-chief Richard Horton to issue a statement:

The statement reads, in part:

The Lancet strives for maximum inclusivity of all people in its vision for advancing health. In this instance, we have conveyed the impression that we have dehumanised and marginalised women. Those who read The Lancet regularly will understand that this would never have been our intention. I apologise to our readers who were offended by the cover quote and the use of those same words in the review.

Interestingly, the review was of a new exhibit at London’s Vagina Museum, which this summer tweeted, “Instead of ‘women and girls’, say ‘people who menstruate’ or ‘people who have periods.'” Instead of women and girls.

Again, they’re just trying to be “inclusive.”
