Apparently, The Body Shop are sponsoring a display this year at the Chelsea Flower Show, as a feminist space, with plants and sculptures echoing the 'curves of the female form'.
What they have come up with, is a large sculpture of 'women's bits' with a few plants in front.
Call me old fashioned!
But I think this sort of thing is offensive and pathetic and am surprised that the RHS is 'enthusiastic and supportive' about it.

Zaha Hadid's football stadium for Qatar 2022 is a play on the female form, surely, and therefore a good joke on the local social attitudes to women. For that reason I like it, even tho I thought it a bit rude at first sight. The context changed my view.
