The Story of Menstrual cycle is a 1946 10-minute computer animated movie produced by Walt Disney Productions in 1946.
It was commissioned by the International Cello-Cotton Company (currently Kimberly-Clark) and was shown to roughly 105 million American pupils in wellness education and learning classes.
It was one of the very first readily funded films to be dispersed to senior high schools. It was distributed with a brochure for instructors as well as trainees called Extremely Directly Yours that included advertising of the Kotex brand name of items, and prevented making use of tampons, where the market was controlled by the Tampax brand name of competitors Procter & Gamble.
The Story of Menstruation is thought to be the very first movie to make use of the word vaginal area in its movie script. Neither sexuality nor reproduction is pointed out in the film, and also an emphasis on sanitation makes it, as Disney chronicler Jim Korkis has actually recommended: "a hygienic crisis instead of a growth event."
