Join Leslie Carol Botha on Monday April 15 when she interviews author Lara Owen as she “illuminates the role the menstrual cycle can play in developing and sustaining female strength, self-healing, and self-knowledge.”
Though posing as a hip, new product to appeal to young women who presumably are not hampered by antiquated notions of when in the cycle it is OK to have sex, the ad implies that, just like the long tradition in pad and tampon ads, you can go about your life as though you did not have a period. In other words, it’s another appeal to “keep him from knowing.”
While writing my book, I came to the realization that I have been part of what might be described as a sleeping giant—an organization known as the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP). In drawing this analogy, I believe it is fair to say a significant percentage of parents with sick infants seek immediate medical care at sites other than their primary care locations. Many of these infants and children will have received a recent immunization. Unless doctors working in emergency and urgent care fully understand and appreciate the objectives of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) and the requirements of the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), the majority of adverse events will go unreported.

Newly published research suggests this troubling tendency can be curtailed, simply by changing the time you visit the mall.
Not the time of day. The time of the month.

From 1994 to 1998, Department of Defense employee Harry Finley curated and operated the Museum of Menstruation out of his suburban Maryland basement. The museum exists now only online and in storage boxes in Finley’s home.
But the years Finley spent assembling, displaying, and defending this collection of historical menstruation artifacts left him with a blocked coronary and a dream: That the culture of menstruation that had consumed Finley would one day be publicly available, out in the open, at a real museum.
