Plymouth bakery and its vulva cupcakes
Every year on 8th March, people worldwide celebrate international women’s day. This day is to remind people of the contributions of women to society. It is to highlight the economic, social, cultural as well as political achievements of women.
And this year, an independent private bakery in Plymouth called Mrs Browns situated off North Hill has decided to celebrate this day in an unique way. Georgie Rowe from the bakery has teamed up with a local female artist, Leah Hayler. They have together created and would be selling vulva cupcakes. These would be in the shape of vulvas and would be in different shapes and sizes. This would help the bakery to support the local business of Leah as well.
The cupcakes would be available at the Gibbon Lane bakery for the whole day on 8th March 2023. These are beautifully decorated delights and would sell at three pounds each. And along with the cupcake would come a free artwork print from Leah.

Georgie put up the advertisement about this unique sale on her Facebook. The post read:
“Join us on Wednesday, March 8 to celebrate International Women’s Day at Mrs Browns Bakery! We will be selling our fabulous Vulva cupcakes , which come in all shapes and sizes.”
“With each purchase of a cupcake you will get a free print too! We have teamed up with an independent female artist @leahjhayler who is creating some beautiful work. We are super excited to be celebrating beautiful women all across the world.”
Every year people especially women celebrate this day with adventures, outings, parties, prizes, awards, recognition of women’s contributions to society, food festivals etc.
The theme of IWD this year
This year, the theme of International women’s day is EmbraceEquity.The website of IWD has posted:
“For International Women’s Day and beyond, let’s all fully #EmbraceEquity. Equity isn’t just a nice-to-have, it’s a must-have.”
“A focus on gender equity needs to be part of every society’s DNA. And it’s critical to understand the difference between equity and equality.”
“The aim of the IWD 2023 #EmbraceEquity campaign theme is to get the world talking about Why equal opportunities aren’t enough. People start from different places, so true inclusion and belonging require equitable action.”
Equity means fairness and impartiality. It is not the same as equality. Equality considers that each individual or a group of people have the same resources or opportunities. But in practice, this is never true. All come from different backgrounds and have access to different resources and opportunities. Hence, equity recognises this fact that each person has different circumstances. Here, it allocates each person with the exact amount of resources and opportunities needed in order to reach an equal outcome.
