March for Women
The library's main window display will focus on facts regarding menstruation and young women. Normally viewed as a taboo topic in our society, menstruation is a natural part of life in women. The purpose for this display is to create dialogue about something that happens to every woman and how it sometimes affects them negatively. We hope to enrich and raise awareness about this issue in honor of Women's History Month.
Take a look at the resources below about Dolores Huerta and menstruation in women. All resources have been found using HISD's Digital Resources. See Ms. Saldivar for assistance in learning how to use HISD's electronic databases.
Includes a downloadable mp3 audio from NPR's All Things Considered.
