Emmy’s Time!

Do you think it is important to openly have scenes about periods on TV?

It’s Emmy’s time! So, of course, the Sisters of Flow had to give our Top 5 television spotlights of periods. One of the major discussions throughout this year’s season of Orange is the New Black reveals what really happens in the prison system when it comes to access to feminine hygiene products. OINTB may be a television show, but this really happens. We talk about an interview with former inmate and founder of prisoner advocacy group, From Life to Life, Donna Hylton. Watching this interview gives you a new appreciation and understanding of what really happens behind bars.

 

Feed your period with sweet potatoes! The luscious goodness of this hearty vegetable serves so many wonderful purposes in helping to regulate your cycle.

 

Special thanks to our Flow Friday Fact partner, the Womb Sanctuary, A Sacred Place for Women to be Seen, Heard and Loved! Check them out at: www.wombsanctuary.com
