Complimentary sanitary bag,
taken from Murray Edwards College
on March 14th, 2020.
What's up with that whiter-than-white, oh-so-coyly exposed dainty ankle? Why is this the image that represents my period and what dealing with it actually entails? And yet this is the same ubiquitous lady gracing the sanitary bags I see in public toilets all over the place. The same ridiculously small waist and exposed shoulder, eyeing me up as I'm trying not to get blood on my hands.
A women's college certainly deserves something better.
