Episode 11: Menstrual Blood - The Last Taboo

Period Coach and international speaker Stasha Washburn thinks menstrual blood is the last taboo. And when 3 out of 4 Australiain women have expressed the same thing, with 70 percent of young women preferring to skip class than have their peers know they’re ‘on their period’, it’s hard to disagree.

Episode 5: What's In A Name? Is It Unfeminist to Take Your Husband's Last Name?
