If only there was a medical term for “bodies with vaginas”

The Herald reports:

The Lancet medical journal has been accused of sexism after describing women as “bodies with vaginas” on the cover of its latest edition.

A Tweet sharing the front page has provoked a wave of criticism, with academics cancelling their subscriptions and resigning as reviewers, doctors blasting the phrase as “dehumanising” and activists suggesting the term is “unhelpful” for broader debates about inclusivity.

If only there was some sort of medical term for human bodies with vaginas, then the Lancet could use it. Maybe there was one that was popularly used in the past?
