CINCINNATI (AP) — The University of Cincinnati says it won't interfere with an outdoor display of female genitalia photos on campus.
The college's LGBTQ Alliance and UC Feminists say the 12 photos of vaginas are meant to cause discussion aimed at discrimination and exploitation of women's bodies. The project called Re-envisioning the Female Body also wants to counter an anti-abortion demonstration on campus last year.
Critics of the temporary display planned Thursday and Friday have complained that is pandering obscenity and could be viewed by young children.
University President Santa Ono (OH'-noh) says in a statement that UC is an academic community where ideas and images are analyzed and debated, however controversial and complex they might be. He also says the school is a public institution obligated to protect the First Amendment.
