Every woman of every age will sigh, smile, cry, and cheer for Moon Days. --Susun S. Weed, Author of Menopausal Years the Wise Woman Way.
We still cannot talk about menstruation—as natural and predictable an occurrence as the rising moon in the evening sky. Contained in this literary and passionate collection of twenty-six writers are stories that speak to the silent phases of a woman’s life.
Like the moon, like women, the book moves in phases. The first, "Early Moons," takes us back to our memories of those first periods and allow us to feel, perhaps for the first time, our terror, embarrassment, shame, wonder, excitement, and laughter. "Waxing Moons," the second phase, moves from adolescent feelings to adult consciousness. In the third phase, "Full Moon Celebrations," we learn that menstruation is indeed connected to our politics, our strength, and our creativity. These stories are powerful and sensuous. The final section of Moon Days is filled with poems and prayers that bring menstruation to light and ultimately to celebration.
