The Museum of Menstruation

I ran across the Museum of Menstruation and Women’s Health the other day when I was looking for Gloria Steinem’s 1978 essay, “If Men Could Menstruate.” The essay is worth looking up, but it turns out so is this web site. The founder is a man, Harry Finley (whose bio is here) and it’s not exactly clear what influenced him to set up this web site, but I’m glad something did, because this site is a treasure trove of information about a subject that every woman obsesses about, but often knows very little about. And let’s not even get into how well most men understand menstruation, let alone empathize with us about it.
