meritbadges Female Merit Badges
Artist Mary Yeager creates female merit badges. She says

My female merit badges illustrate female “rites of passage” as well as the myriad physical manipulations women undergo to achieve cultural ideals of beauty, such as weight watching, whether or not to shave or wear makeup, etc. I’ve created tiny replicas of female products, such as a birth control pill pack and a pregnancy test. The miniature scale and meticulous, hand-embroidered surfaces convey my impressions of growing up female in our culture.

Found via Little Yellow Bird. Some of her badges feature female anatomy so don’t click if you are sensitive to such things.
