Summary
"Houppert argues that industry ad campaigns have effectively stymied consumer debate, research, and safety monitoring of the sanitary protection industry." She discusses how "confident girls learn to be self-conscious teens" and how "the mostly male-dominated media have set a tone that shapes women's experiences for them, defining what they are allowed to feel about their periods, their bodies, and their sexuality."--Jacket
