Aussie Body-Posi Doco’s BS Rating Overturned, Can Now Be Shown In Schools

It’s been a hard slog with the Classifications Board for Taryn Brumfitt and her body-positive doco EMBRACE‘, which initially copped a MA15+ rating and couldn’t be shown to the all-important teenage audience without a responsible adult present. 
The classification copped the nickname ‘Vulvagate’, and delicious vagina-inspired treats popped up at a screening in South Australia.

Activism in its purest form.
After the fanny fury of vulvagate, the Classifications Board has flipped on their initial rating of the film, now slapping it with a M rating. It means that people under 15 can view the doco, and it can now be shown in schools without supervision. 
A bloody big win for Taryn and the Body Image Movement
“I am thrilled that the right decision has been made. With the rates of labiaplasty on the rise, particularly in teens, I knew how important it was to include the educational and informative vulva section in the film. Since the film’s release I have been told every day that it must be seen in schools and now it can be.”

Taryn initially began the Body Image Movement when images of herself documenting her personal struggle with body image issues went absolutely bonkers online three years ago. 

EMBRACE was picked out to screen at this year’s Sydney Film Festival, and is now being shown in cinemas and schools.
