Abstract:

In this program, we meet artists and activists who are challenging taboos surrounding menstruation, often in outrageous ways that may shock some viewers. The program also explores menstruation's impact on society and its role as a rite of passage. Artist Judy Chicago discusses how outraged audiences reacted to a graphic painting in her Menstruation Bathroom exhibit. Author Judy Blume reads from her popular book, Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. Biologist Margie Profet discusses her contention that women menstruate to rid their uteruses of sperm residues. And the curator of a Museum of Menstruation displays a bizarre collection of advertisements for sanitary protection. Medical issues such as toxic shock syndrome are candidly discussed, as well as the environmental controversy surrounding the disposal of tampon casings.
