    It is difficult to believe that women ever deliberately just bled into their valuable, scarce clothing when it is so easy to wad at least a rag between your legs.

    Every healthy woman on earth menstruates apprx 12 times every year for 30 or more years of her life, and it’s still such a taboo subject.

    If you visit any textile museum you can find that out. The “Sanitary Napkin” as it is commonly referred to today was invented in Victorian times. Up until that time they had nothing. While it is true Men have demonized Menstruation( or Womanstruation, as I call it) for centuries, doesn’t mean that they know what to do about it. In many cultures Women were simply placed in a “*****es Box”, or chased out of a village,until it stopped. Many of the Misogynist practices today come from that hated.

    That wasn’t used until the Victorian era, I’m afraid (if your referring to Women’s issues.)

    A long strip of cloth, “the rag” was folded to create along “pad” that sometimes but not always had a ribbon stiched to make easier to attach to a belt or narrow sash about the waist/hip with pins , knots or buttons.

    LOL, I’m replying to my own comment. You inspired me starquant! I just googled this subject, and found tons of results including a Wikipedia entry on the “culture of menstruation”. After the movie I’ll check it out. This might get interesting.

    Where did you get this info, and where in the world did women ever go around doing this? There was/still is a big taboo on menstrual blood in “civilized” societies, and various cultures and religions. What you are describing, I think, would have been unacceptable. I’m sure women were inventive enough to make their own um…..supplies. I feel like looking all this up because now I wonder what did they do.

  • Anita McGuinn 7 months ago

    This is great to watch however the lead actress seems……………… not right for this.

    Women made pads from rags hence the term “on your rag”

  • starquant 7 months ago

    Actually they didn’t wear under garments. It’s quite true. The “Loincloth”.. I think is a bit of a Myth I’m afraid.

  • starquant 7 months ago

    Nothing.. Women wore many skirts. In essence the skirts dragged along the ground and wiped away any blood. When a Woman sat down, again the blood was absorbed into the skirts. I’m sure it would have leached through and if it did perhaps the Woman would change (I don’t know) Clothes wore only generally used once because they would get covered in Menstrual blood. Women don’t loose a lot of blood during a period, it just seems like it.

    brother and sister got married? and have *** together? oh yurk~!!

    Rubbish. People have been wearing underwear for thousands of years. The loincloth is the simplest form of underwear; it was probably the first undergarment worn by human beings. That’s dating back to ancient times.
