Seeing Red -Episode 5

The Book Interrupted six women continue discussions inspired by reading “Seeing Red: The One Book Every Woman Needs to Read. Period.” by Kirsten Karchmer. In this episode they touch on topics of painful periods, men living in women’s bodies for a month, sexual and menstrual education, period underwear, perimenopause, and naturopaths versus doctors. They finish the episode by sharing whether they each recommend the book.  Discussion Points: Changing our mindsets that pain with periods is not normal, even if it is common It might be common, but it’s not normal - how can we use this in other parts of our lives? Would there be equality if women were in power? What would happen if men had to live in a women’s body and mind for a month? Should doctors be required to take a mandatory class specific on women’s biology? Why do we segregate sex ed? How do we educate children about menstruation - both girls and boys? Period underwear - do they work and how do we clean them? What are the symptoms of perimenopause? PCOS? Bloodwork ranges - the difference between doctors and naturopaths? Would we recommend this book? Mentioned on this episode of Book Interrupted: My Balanced Life. Finding inner balance through individual, corporate, and community wellness programs.
