If you missed this sold out class last year, you’re in luck! Homestead Makers Janeen & Daniela of Holy Sponge! host an evening of discussion on the ultimate taboo–menstruation! How did this sacred biological cycle become so wrapped up in stigma and shame? We’ll journey from the ancient rituals of our foremothers through the medicalization of the female body and corporatization of menstrual “hygiene”, landing at the present day global awakening know as Menstrual Activism. Class cost includes the Premiere Issue of “Damn Bloody Rite: A Quarterly Rag Mag” and a guaranteed opportunity at a bleeding good time!
