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.

One Response to “And Speaking of Menstruation….”

  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!
