Speaking Her Voice - Elissa Stein

I recently received an email from Elissa Stein, co-author of the book Flow: The Cultural Story of Menstruation sharing with the WCC community her latest article on the Huffington Post - To Vajayjay Or Not To Vajayjay. I am incredibly grateful for Elissa and co-author Susan Kim's work to bring attention to women's bodies in a  fresh, vibrant, creative, and eclectic way.

There continues to be an increase in the multitude of ways in which women's bodies are objectified, demeaned and down right abused including by women themselves.  Books like Flow: The Cultural Story of Menstruation provide another creative outlet for discourse on the importance of conciousness-raising and education for women and men alike about women's bodies and experiences.

So, grab yourself an I love my vagina coffee mug, a few girlfriends and check out Elissa's website and blog for more information about her work, inner most thoughts and most recent book.
