I was privileged and honored to attend the Society for Menstrual Cycle Research Conference in NYC. earlier this summer. The conference was held at Marymount Manhattan College – in downtown. It has been years since I had been back in the city – and I enjoyed it immensely. Over 100 women and men attended the event from 12 countries. It was so exciting to see all of the work being done in the area menstrual health awareness.
During the biannual conference, titled: “Menstruation Matters”, Gloria Steinem was honored with the first ‘Menstruation Matters’ award. I had the pleasure of meeting Gloria before her phenomenal acceptance – and personally handed her a copy of my book, ‘Understanding Your Mind, Mood and Hormone Cycle‘.
SMCR posted a video of Gloria accepting the “Menstruation Matters” award awarded for her prose of many years ago – “If Men Could Menstruate” in the October 1978 issue of Ms Magazine.
I was so surprised to hear Steinem speak about the menstrual cycle in relation to the lunar cycle. She came alive at the podium and is a brilliant speaker and leader as we all know.
