Before the Stopping Starts
Ms. Magazine

2d ago
As I got older, I began to understand that things will get weirder and weirder before your period stops—something every woman should know before the stopping starts. Then something else will happen. You will begin to notice a large chunk of the world, nearly invisible until now: an army of cool, older women, the ones who have emerged on the other side and flourished.

And this is where the flamenco dancing m ..read more
