Awesome Ovaries

Awesome Ovaries

by Ashley Hartman Annis, FAE, RHE Author and Caitlin McMurtry Author

Do you understand your uterus? It's not like people have been lining up our whole lives to teach us how these things actually work and how to take care of them. This little zine is packed with facts and drawings that explain your uterus, periods, ovulation, getting pregnant, the little-discussed "clear flow", vulvas and penises, the clitoris, hormones, what it means to be intersex, how to track and manage your period, safe and unsafe touch, and MORE. The authors don't treat this stuff like it's shameful, they don't conflate your body parts with your gender, and they treat periods like a superpower. I learned more from reading this zine than I did in 12 years of sex ed classes in school.
