The Art of Menstruation at the Museum of Menstruation and Women's Health

"Go with the Flow"
Kat Grandy

I have been writing all my life. I always figure things out better if I put them down on paper. I remember what it was like to be a young girl who always thought that having a period was a very secret thing. My mom was very matter of fact about the whole thing so I took it in stride until I saw how things were at school.

I remember the first time. I was at my aunt's in another town, and I had a white skirt on and the red dots were everywhere. We were at the restaurant when someone told me. I remember being so mortified as if they could see me naked. That feeling stayed with me a long time. I have been painting with watercolor these last few years and I let the paint take me where it wants to - I was painting this woman wild and free and since I love the color red these days I thought that maybe it would be good to show that red is a good thing - it pumps throughout our body and makes us a warm-blooded animal and so the blood that leaves our body does not have to be considered a bad thing either. It is real, bright, rich and a necessary part of our womaness. Hence - Go With the Flow.
