Dr. Patty Brennan is an evolutionary biologist at Mount Holyoke College who studies the diversity of genital structures, with an emphasis on vaginal structures--from snakes, to birds, to sharks. 

She is shifting the exclusive focus on what might be called phallocentric science to include vaginocentric science. Dr. Brennan points out that the morphology of vaginas and penis are very closely co-evolved.

Professor Brennan is included in a Science series, the XX series, featuring the work of women scientists. There are three short videos.
