This might be the most gangster #WomensEqualityDay stunt of all time. Yesterday, we spotted the word 'VAGINA' in huge, pink letters on the billboard above Marc Jacobs's corner boutique on Melrose Avenue. The vandalized sign certainly caught the eyes of drivers, who slowed down to take snaps for clever Instagram posts.

We've reached out to the store, but haven't received a comment. We wonder who's behind the risky stunt, and whether or not they've already preordered their Rachel Antonoff uterus sweatshirt.
