If we ask you about an emoji that denotes a penis, what would you say? An eggplant emoji, right? While we have emojis for the male genitalia what about the vagina? Some women on Twitter have some great options to choose from. A simple Twitter search will show you how women are posting their favourite emojis to describe a vagina and it is beyond beautiful. However, you must know that this is a part of a bigger women's health campaign, known as #EndSmearFear. With Sexual Health Awareness Week 2019 going on, the campaign does seem timely. Many women are sharing their favourite emoji, which they think represents the vagina. Most popular ones included the blue butterfly, the rose, the wilted rose, and the peach.

We all know what the 🍆 stands for, but we’re less comfortable talking about vaginas, cervixes and smear tests. Choose your favourite vagina emoji & share an #EndSmearFear tweet with a smear test tip, word of support or your experience. #CervicalScreening

Here's From Lesbian
Being a lesbian who’s never been with a guy and will never be with a guy there’s literally a 2% chance of me developing cervical cancer in my life. That doesn’t stop me from still booking my smear test in when I turn 25. I could be part of the 2% #EndSmearFear

What Is #EndSmearFear Campaign?
Love Island star, Maura Higgins started the #EndSmearFear campaign for a positive cause. She wants to highlight the importance of going for regular smear tests this Sexual Health Awareness Week 2019. The 28-year-old took to Twitter with the hashtag #EndSmearFear to spread awareness about smear tests. She also referenced her Love Island catchphrase "Fanny Flutters" to encourage women to speak openly about "vaginas, cervixes and smear tests". She started off with the campaign by asking her Twitter followers to share their favourite "vagina emoji". She said that her favourite vagina emoji was the butterfly.
"Smear tests aren't always easy so let's help #EndSmearFear by talking more about them. I got the nation talking about Fanny Flutters now let's do the same with vaginas, cervixes and smear tests! Starting with a hunt for our favourite vagina emoji. Mine is definitely [butterfly emoji].", Maura Higgins wrote on Twitter.
