Beijing university students sponsor 'My vagina says' activity to promote feminism
My vagina says: I’ll let whoever I want to get in.
Pictures of Beijing female students holding whiteboard with sentences starting with 'My vagina says' go viral on Chinese internet.

The activism organization published 17 pictures on its website on November 4th, which features female students of the university holding whiteboard with sentences starting with “My vagina says”, Sina reports.
According to the report, the pictures were to promote an upcoming performance of the Vagina Monologues on the university campus. The stage play, inspired by an American drama The Vagina Monologues written by American playwright Eve Ensler released in 1996, calls for self-consciousness of females and respect to women.
English college party chief Mr. Lu told reporters that the Vagina Monologue was permitted to be staged, but he refused to comment on the pictures.

@红唇chun: I and my little buddies are surprised to see these pictures.
@天为谁春__: Hehe, what their vigina says is cleaner than some of your dirty remarks. Leave it at that you dare not say, it is unbelievable that you condemn them both in speech and in writing.
@早餐我就吃挂面: The Laowai is more direct.
A NetEase user from Beijing: I can not accept these behaviors. As a traditional man, I still favor soft, gentle and reserved girls.
