IT’S WONDERFUL BEING A GIRL (1966) – This 22 minute educational film about menstruation features one of my all-time favorite lines from female hygiene shorts. That line is “You CAN have fun while you’re menstruating!” To me that remark is even more fun than the line from Molly Grows Up which goes “Menstruating girls should avoid square dancing.” (That’s good advice for anybody, really, even if they’re not menstruating.)
Mom is about to introduce her 12 year old daughter Libby to the facts about “that time of the month”. When Libby states that she’s not sure if she’ll like it Mom reminds her “You said you couldn’t wait to grow up.”
Soon Libby has a virtual PhD in menses as Mom uses Modess Sanitary Napkins (the sponsors of this short, to the surprise of no one) to prepare her daughter for the future. “See this blue polyethylene on the side? That’s a special moisture-proof shield!” she tells Libby with WAY too much enthusiasm.
By film’s end Libby is experiencing her first period (insert your own hockey joke here) but thanks to Mom and Modess Sanitary Napkins she doesn’t have to miss out on a roller-skating trip with her friends.
