companies made for girls, women and teachers - patent
medicine - a list of books and articles about
periods and puberty: a practical guide for girls Puberty & menstruation information for girls, 1987,
Always menstrual pads, Procter & Gamble, U.S.A.
Always menstrual pads created a bold and
snazzy booklet for girls.
Bold from its depicting the Tanner
stages of girls' breast and pubic hair development, which I suspect
you find in few if any such booklets for girls before this time - but why
not? It was their bodies and why not show them what was going to happen
anyway. Still, I suspect a few adults today (and then) might get upset over
the drawings, a schematic version of the originals.
Snazzy from the slashing bright colors
and schematic drawings that also make it sometimes hard to read. Putting
text and charts on a changing background confuses the brain.
