FOR REAL: Parents Are Throwing Their Daughters “Period Parties.” Thoughts?

Wave goodbye to the stigma, because parents are now throwing  “period parties” for their teenage daughters. And party favors include  packs of tampons, sanitary towels and uterus-shaped cakes. Period  parties focus on educating young girls about menstruation and teaching  them the lessons they may not receive in sex education classes at  school. It’s intended to be an open space, where girls can discuss  starting their period, ask questions and debunk any myths they may have  heard from friends (like the age-old “can you get pregnant while on your  period?”) It’s not just about education, though. Many young girls often  feel apprehensive about starting their period. For parents, period  parties are about making the occasion something to celebrate, rather  than fear.

  • Do you wish they had period parties when you were a young woman?
