Underneath the parietal peritoneum, which covers the superior and posterior surfaces of the pelvic viscera, we have the pelvic fascia which can be further divided into

bullet

Parietal  fascia- this covers the pelvic wall and the surfaces of the levator ani or pelvic floor and that of the obturator internus. It is pelvic fascia proper.

bullet

Visceral fascia. This is the endopelvic fascia. It is the extraperitoneal cellular tissue that covers the urinary bladder, rectum and vagina. They form ligament to anchor the cervix, uterus and vagina to the pelvic wall. See Uterus.

Pelvic fascia in general covers organs, the pelvic wall and the pelvic floor but avoids bones except at the fascia of Waldeyer which is attached to the hollow of sacrum.
