You Go Girl: Female Merit Badges

Amelia McDonell-Parry / February 1, 2009

Artist Mary Yeager has created a line of “Female Merit Badges” which resemble Girl Scout Merit Badges, but represent female rites of passage like childbirth, inserting a tampon, breast exams, and birth control pills. While you can’t order the individual patches to sew onto your awesome Army jacket (What? You don’t have one?), you can order a full color poster which features 28 of the patches. []
