Description

Last week, our community came together for the opening of the (In)visible Organ exhibit, fostering a creative space that reflects on, challenges, and re-imagines cultural perceptions of female sexual and reproductive health. We want to continue the conversation, and make it one that includes your story, your thoughts, and your voice.

“The (In)visible Organ” documentary is a feature-length film produced by Andrea Kim that is currently in early stages of production. It tells the story of a research lab that has removed the speculum from the pelvic exam. The Callascope is a medical device developed in Nimmi Ramanujam’s Biomedical Engineering lab at Duke that produces images of the cervix in an entirely new way, making cervical cancer screenings more comfortable and widely accessible.

This film will address the structural and social barriers that create global disparities in women’s healthcare, particularly the prevalence of cervical cancer. The invisibility of the cervix correlates not only with global health disparities but also with the lack of education and awareness about women’s reproductive anatomy in broader society. By taking the cervix as a site for storytelling and dialogue, this documentary is a call to creatively reimagine the ideas and relationships that women have to their bodies.

The Calla Campaign is all about collaboration and community, so please join us in creating a collective vision for a society that prioritizes women’s healthcare. We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
