Bodyform #wombstories


Trigger warning: video includes images of needles and portrayal of baby loss.

I wanted to share this video by Bodyform because it deals with the side of menstruation so often left out by mainstream media. Menstrual blood is not blue and some women choose not to, or are unable to, have children. Bodyform says: 

From the age of 12 women are taught they get their periods, should want and then have children, have a few more periods and then retire. Their femininity constructed around the idea of fertility.

Bodyform are challenging this norm by sharing real women’s experiences in their new #wombstories campaign. A campaign to challenge taboos and give women’s health issues a voice: periods, endometriosis, miscarriage, infertility, IVF, menopause and even the simple decision to not want to have children are covered in this thought provoking film showing what it really means to be a woman – there is no one size fits all.

The goal: give women the confidence to talk and make society stop silencing women’s health.

I think it's a fabulous video and, whilst there's still a ways to go I think this is definitely a step in the right direction.
