Women's Health


Program Description:

"What would happen if men menstruated?" Gloria Steinem asked this question more than 20 years ago. Her answer included some provocative possibilities: Men would boast about how long and how much they menstruated; Congress would fund a National Institute of Dysmenorrhea to help stamp out monthly discomforts; sanitary supplies would be federally funded and free. Elson discusses the cultural beliefs and social arrangements surrounding women's health.
