    See to it, please, that this URL gets into the hands of tweens in the red states. Too many young girls of all races get no info from their parents and guardians. Had it not been for the Girl Scouts, I would have had my first period entirely uninformed, and probably would have thought I was dying. Thanks for a great blog which is long overdue!

    This website was forwarded to us by a faculty member at our college, St. Mary’s College of California. We, The Cycle Sisters, are a guerilla feminist group on campus, and our first campaign was for menstrual awareness. Our school was not supplying tampons, let alone stocking the dispensers in the bathrooms, so we took action. Thank you for creating this site, and we will be sure to forward it to all our members!

  4. I saw the article on Women’s E-News, and Bravo to you! I’ve bookmarked your site. I’m an advocate for women in prison, I live in California right now and I’m 55.

    Nancy, are there unique menstrual issues for women in prison that we should know about (and perhaps address here)? Feel free to email us.
