The word itself makes some men uncomfortable. Vagina.

Call me crazy, but this Stop Violence Against Women sign sure has some suggestive imagery about it.
Did the designer purposely use vaginal imagery in the word NOW in order to make a point about how cultures portray women as little more than an orifice? Could it also be the design of the lettering has the intention of empowering females by re-claiming as their own an image that is often used in sexist art, or am I reading to much into it and it is just a coincidence?

I understand that NOW has been around a while but I'm a guy and don't usually pay attention to that stuff.
