Honi Soit has to Censor its Cover
Honi Soit is the University of Sydney's student magazine and was established in 1929, which makes it the oldest student publication in the country. With a recent scandal about their cover artwork, they also proved a point.
In August 2013, the magazine's cover was comprised out of 18 pictures of female students' vulvae. Without censorship or any implications, that means that the cover is comparable to a sex education book. The goal was to show how sexualized and also stigmatized the female genitalia are in today's world. Also, the aim was to hint at a certain beauty ideal for vaginas that are ideally soft, pink, shaved and preferably belong to a white woman.
The university's lawyers reacted immediately and demanded that the cover had to be censored. Every vulva was partly hidden under a black stripe. However, they weren't completely non-transparent so that the students council decided to seize the 4000 copies because they would infringe on the New South Wales Crimes Act.
Chief editor Hannah Ryan was outraged about this:
