I remember Menarche. It was an awkward celebration between my mother and I. In a house full of male energy, we stole a quiet moment in our ‘Red Tent’ ~ the little bathroom of my childhood home…our only place of privacy and solace.

ON that life-changing day, my mother showed me how to use disposable maxi pads and then smiled at me and said “You’re a woman!”

In that moment, I felt the confusion of my female lineage tumble down through me. 

Am I a woman? What does that mean? Do I even want to be one?
