It isn't about being confident in a bikini, it's about addressing the shame, embarrassment and lack of knowledge that women routinely experience when something goes wrong inside their pelvis (ovaries, womb, cervix, vagina) or between their legs (the vulva).

As I write this, thousands are gathering in Paris to urge world leaders to make a binding commitment to tackle climate change. I have to admit - I feel guilty for not being amongst them, for not doing my bit to swell the ranks and help in raising awareness of a cause that has such global significance.
