"Today there is talk of menstruation openly in bars, social networks and even in parliaments. After centuries silenced and ignored, feminism claimed it in the seventies, denying it as a differentiating element. The new generations are now demanding the right to recognize that it is."
I like to imagine the union of all women as the force of a volcano when it erupts.
It is said that volcanoes are like the yin and yang of the earth, they destroy, but at the same time they are creators of life. Thus, like the volcano, it is painful to rebuild new paths away from the patriarchy, that is why we do it together.​​​​
In a gynecological consultation, most alterations regarding menstruation are alleviated with contraceptive pills. The medical community, despite having been shown the side effects they generate in us, still does not take into account the uniqueness of each woman. Therefore, the representation of each pill, as they see us, the same.​​​​​​​
As Simone de Beauvoir wrote in her book The Second Sex: "You are not born a woman, you become one." In our society, the thought that the construct of being a woman revolves exclusively around biological sex is still very latent, thus leaving trans women excluded.​​​​​​​
