My mother grew up in rural Texas where traditional schooling was out of reach for her, consequently, she was a big fan of education.
When I was in elementary school, part of 6th grade was a film/discussion about menstruation. When Mom and I had a follow-up to the school’s lecture & film, we went to the local library together.
She preceded to check out Our Bodies, Our Selves. She obtained a Spanish version and an English version.
I will always thank her for her progressive approach to sex and women’s bodies.
