Vulva La Revolution explores the intersection between science, culture, fem tech, and medicine to explain the phenomenon of medical gaslighting that women experience and illuminate a path toward better health care for all womxn. Accompany trailblazer Dr. Maria Uloko – one of six doctors in the world specializing in sexual health issues of ALL genders – and her fierce team of leaders as they join forces to start a sexual health revolution.


This documentary meticulously unpacks the historical and current landscape of women’s healthcare, spotlighting the significant challenges in accessing adequate care and treatment. By delving into the evolution of medicine concerning female sexuality and health, we aim to connect sexual health to the overarching narrative that the women face in accessing healthcare represents a public health crisis that remains largely unseen. Our exploration will span the intersections of science, culture, and medicine to illuminate the widespread issue of medical gaslighting—where women’s health concerns are minimized or dismissed by the healthcare system. The documentary will expose how historical biases, policy failures, and scientific neglect have collectively impaired women’s access to crucial, sometimes life-saving, healthcare services. We will delve into how the lines of science blur with popular culture and society by also including authors, journalists, historians, sociologists, other notable sexual medicine experts and artists and their relation to medicine and being a woman in the system.

The film will be broken up into three acts following three main storytellers: a patient, a doctor, and a femtech CEO along their journeys. Act 1 – Wait WTF? The Great Awakening Provides an overview of the current representation and treatment of women in the medical field through the lens of a physician, patient advocate and femtech CEO Act 2- How did we get here? Discusses the historical challenges and marginalization women have faced regarding sexual health and medicine Act 3- A Way Forward Summarizes the current state of women’s sexual health and medicine, showcases the inventions moving forward in femtech, and issues a call to action.

Central to our story is the revolutionary role of femtech and sextech companies. As pioneers in closing the health gap, these entities represent what the traditional healthcare sector has often failed to address—offering innovative solutions to longstanding issues in women’s health. We will feature interviews with leading figures in femtech and sextech who are at the forefront of creating technologies and services that enhance women’s health, shining a light on how they are challenging and changing the status quo.
