And Speaking of Menstruation….

posted Wednesday September 11th, 2013

If you have not seen this instructional video — made by Disney in 1946 — it’s worth 10 minutes of your time. I have heard that it was banned, but I haven’t been able to verify that. Apparently it won the “Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval” and was shown to tens of millions of high school students. You can read a whole lot more about it here.

I much prefer it to “Pink Slip,” which I’ve been writing about for the last few days. You can decide for yourself.

  1. That’s pretty awesome! At first I thought it was going to be a spoof, but obviously not. Pretty progressive for 1946. I might could use that . . .

    Thanks for sharing it!
