The Women’s Health Foundation has launched their Below Your Belt initiative aimed at educating adolescent girls about all things ‘down there’. The initiative includes a community blog and soon to be released Below Your Belt book. The book will feature The Dot Girl First Period Kit as a suggested resource for educating girls about menstruation.
Honored to be included along with a great set of period book recommendations by the wonderful A Mighty Girl website! Check out their site for book and product recommendations galore for girls including “That Time Of The Month”: Teaching Your Mighty Girl About Her Menstrual Cycle”.
We love finding fun, pretty and useful products to manage periods. Keep up to date with our recommendations and where to find them at the Dot Girl Period Products Board on Pinterest.
Sometimes I run across something in the news that I am not sure is cool or gross – like the current movement of mothers eating their newborn babies placentas. I think this article about fertilizing your garden with menstrual blood also falls into both categories. It’s great to be eco-friendly but I am going to leave it up to Dot Girl readers as to whether or not this is going a bit too far!
Dot Girl announces a new partnership with Professional Leaders of Women and Girls (PLWG) – a network of dedicated leaders working together to hone their skills and abilities for working with girls.
Founded by Kim Thomas, of Afro Puffs and Ponytails, the network is an online resource for business leaders to plan and execute programs that empower African American/black girls. Business Partners support the network through promotion of activities for girls and leaders and social media outreach.
Dot Girl will be publishing articles on the PLWG website that educate girls about menstruation and offer suggestions on how leaders can integrate ‘period talk’ into programs.
