Lancet editor apologises for calling women 'bodies with vaginas' on medical journal's cover



Richard Horton, the editor of a leading medical journal has apologised for describing women as 'bodies with vaginas' on the front page of its latest edition.



The Lancet was accused of sexism and dehumanising women after its editors used the term, which was written in an article titled 'Periods on Display', on the journal's front cover in an attempt to be inclusive to trans people.



The article, which was published on September 1, examines an exhibition exploring the taboos and history of periods at the Vagina Museum in London. The writer also used the word 'women' but also use the term 'bodies with vaginas'.
