About the Book
Jennifer started her period at the tender age of 11, and suddenly felt an intense social pressure to hide her newly-matured body. It's an experience far too familiar. Young girls are bombarded with both verbal and discreet messages to hide their menstrual status, while at the same time are told that menstruation is a "rite of passage". The result: a society filled to the brim with women who feel conflicted, isolated, and ostracized.
The Cycle sheds light on factors that contribute to this menstrually-oppressive society of ours, and will turn any skeptic of any gender into a menstrual-maniac. So how do we fix a broken social order? Hidden in plain sight is something so thought-provoking, so powerful, and so needed that it almost sounds too good to be true. It's a method that can be used as a highly effective form of contraception, a tool to help couples conceive, and a way for women to gauge their reproductive health. Yet it's something few people know anything about. That's all about to change. Buckle up and get ready to be let in on a stigma-eliminating, confidence-inducing, health-benefitting, bloody-awesome secret.
