Pledge to our Body and Mind

on this first Menstrual Monday
May 8, 2000

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *  *   *   *   *   *   *  

On this day, we pledge:

To cherish, not curse, our bodies

To accept, not deny, our blood

To rename, not despise, our period

monthly flow

crimson tide

To embrace, not deface, our bodies

To treasure, not neglect
our reproductivity

To celebrate, not hate, our ovaries

To venerate, not scorn, our hormones

To value, not condemn, our fallopian tubes

To hunger for our rhythms and cycles

To engage our innate ability to heal

To captivate our sense of the miraculousness

To release,     not retain,     OUR SHAME!

Shed the Shame!
