War, revolution, and economic development defined the new roles of women, and the needs of the times invented new ways of bleeding. As the extension of women’s rights reached a plateau at some point, there has been no advancement since disposable pads and tampons, the virtues of which is to be quick, be unnoticed, be quiet, and be shameful.
