The b*tch is back - how to properly talk about menstruation and why to involve men in the conversation

MORE TALK ABOUT THE WOMAN'S CYCLE
Though we live in an open society with a great desire and freedom to debate anything and everything, there are still taboos. One of them, according to Polish-born Marcin Jakub Cieslik, is the woman's monthly cycle. Women and men do not talk enough to each other − and among themselves − about the menstrual cycle. Through a social media campaign he wishes to disseminate more information about a taboo which men, in particular, need to know much more about.

MERE SNAK OM KVINDENS CYKLUS
Selvom vi lever i et åbent samfund med stor lyst og frihed til at debattere snart sagt alt, er der stadig tabuer. Ét af dem er, ifølge polsk-fødte Marcin Jakub Cieslik, kvindens månedlige cyklus. Kvinder og mænd taler ikke nok sammen – og hver især - om menstruationen. Ved hjælp af en social mediekampagne ønsker han af udbrede mere information om et tabu, som ikke mindst mænd har behov for at vide langt mere om.
