Honoring Menarche Throughout The World

In many Western cultures, rites of passage are rare since girls are taught to keep aspects of sexual development private.  This is unfortunate not only for the girl, but for the society as a whole.  By hiding this important event, the girl is given a negative message about her womanhood.  In the video below you can see how some women are trying very hard to change this and to empower their daughters. 

Many non-Western cultures seem to be much more aware of the importance of celebrating this special time.  It’s actually not so easy so find a common theme in these celebrations. For more details choose a culture in the drop-down menu.
