Just go to etsy and search "Vagina" you'll get seven whole pages of goodies.
Eve Ensler founder of V-Day, a nonprofit grass roots movement dedicated to ending violence against women around the world. In three years, V-Day has spread to over 300 colleges, where students and faculty have performed The Vagina Monologues on V-Day, February 14th, as part of a movement to stop violence against women. This year 2008 is V-Day's 10th Anniversary. They have raised over $50 Million dollars for local anti-violence groups, crisis centers, and Shelters.
April 11 and 12th in New Orleans and Louisiana is a V-Day event. Two days of speakers, Performances, wellness and more. Go to http://www.vday.org/
I was lucky enough to see the Vagina Monologue here in Eugene this last February. I must say: WOW! I would urge everyone to see this. I believe it would make a whole world of difference if it was shown to high schools around the US and around the world!

I saw the etsy store with the yoni keychains and purses. They are so cute and furry. Serious and cute at the same time! Super fun idea. And I like your themed feature!
