Odd things, daily.
In 1946, Walt Disney Productions created this amazing little period movie, and I don’t mean it was set in a different period. See what I did there? This animated short was designed to educate young women about their changing bodies. It’s believed to be the first film ever to use the word “vagina”.
As well as teaching young women that “there is nothing strange or mysterious about menstruation”, the film was also distributed with a booklet discouraging the use of tampons. Check out the video below.
History is hilarious.
