A new crowdfunding campaign by Adelaide visual artist Amy Hermann aims to strip labels off women – to celebrate the diversity of all that is female.

The “Underneath We Are…”  campaign is set up a Pozible page and asks people to pledge money so Hermann can photograph 100 women stripped to their undies.

“Underneath, we are … young, fat, tall, we are trans, skinny, disabled, we are mothers, we are short, scarred and old,” the campaign reads. “We are the many labels that society has created for us. But what if I told you that underneath, underneath it all … We are women.

“Education is the key to giving women and men a better understanding and appreciation for the ways the female body grows, shapes and changes over time and with different life experiences,” she wrote.

As of 5pm yesterday, over $3,000 had been pledged to Hermann’s project.
