Because Disney doesn’t own enough of my childhood already, I sometimes go looking for some of their less well-known videos. Given that we’re learning about the menstrual cycle now, I thought this 1949 educational video was timely. It’s interesting to contrast how periods were presented to students then versus how they are presented now in science textbooks. Also interesting to note how the Disney production urges girls to not get emotionally overwhelmed and continue to be their cheery, perky self.
