Lily Williams (@lwbean) and Karen Schneeman (@themeanmagenta) share GO WITH THE FLOW, a comic about menstruation. Period. It's a story about getting your first period and how not all periods are the same from one woman to the next, but it’s also about destigmatizing menstruation in our society. It’s about public embarrassment, but it’s also about barriers to access of feminine hygiene products to the general public. It’s about friendship, and it’s also about demonstration, protest, and advocacy. From a webcomic called THE MEAN MAGENTA to  a full length comic, GO WITH THE FLOW is a welcomed and needed addition to libraries and bookshelves everywhere. I hope it finds its way into your hands very soon.
