Japanese ROKUDENASHIKO grew up in a traditional Shinto-Buddhist family. As a manga and performance artist, often creating vagina-themed art, she fights against the demonization of female lust and sexuality in Japan. She was arrested and charged with “obscenity” and currently faces two years imprisonment.

Rokudenashiko vehemently advocates the acceptance of artistic representation of the vagina and artistic freedom in her work. She is hoping for an acquittal in her trial.
