The Venus Symbol

Venus Symbol

The symbol for “woman” or “female” was named after the Goddess Venus and has become the symbol denoting all things female.

It is sometimes displayed on the door of the women’s restroom. Despite it’s relegation to bathroom doors, there is actually a lot more meaning to it related to spirituality. Fortunately as we’ve learned more about gender neutrality and inclusion, the symbol has been adapted in many ways to better reflect gender diversity.
