Women of PATH put on a (female) condom fashion show

I’m a day late (and more than a dollar short) to celebrate  Global Female Condom Day. But I did make it to a fashion show promoting female or women’s condoms at Seattle-based PATH. Though not yet in wide use, many see the female condom as another tool that can empower women to protect themselves from disease and exert control over their reproductive health. A related post at USAID.

The models were either wearing apparel actually fashioned from various kinds of female condoms or ‘thematic’ gowns that illustrated the value or function of female condoms. Lots of thumpy music and laughs.
