Good Girls Don't Podcast

[RE-BROADCAST] Good Girls Don't Have Periods

Jan 5, 2020

Why is there so much shame around our periods? Why do our periods seem like a burden, something that diminishes us and our ability to function in the world instead of being a source of empowerment? In today's world of self-empowerment, our periods are still used to control, and negate a female's sense of self, especially in disconnecting her from her body.

This was such a fabulous and educational conversation about menstruation, and how to work with our hormones instead of against them. We also talk about bringing men into the conversation and how menstruation can help bring balance to the entire family, the effects of the pill and the chemical controlling of our bodies from fertility to the coffin, and what we need to teach our daughters.

And most importantly, does chocolate really help?
