Let's talk about sex
Unsuspecting shoppers in a Venezuelan mall have discovered some unconventional mannequins in one storefront: pregnant schoolgirls.
Two children's charities are behind the month-long display in a Caracas mall, Reuters reports. The three mannequins, who sport backpacks, blue school uniforms and baby bumps, are meant to start discussions about the country's high adolescent pregnancy rate.
Construyendo Futuros and Fundana may also plant the mannequins in other malls across Venezuela.
"It's amazing seeing people react as they walk by. This is such a taboo subject in Venezuela, we want people to talk about it," Construyendo Futuros President Thalma Cohen told Reuters. "Some people get angry and complain. Others congratulate us."
