Season of Orisii : gina Breedlove & Ash-lee Woodard Henderson Black Girl's Guide to Surviving Menopause

    • Society & Culture

Welcome to our 6th iteration of the Black Girl's Guide to Surviving Menopause podcast: the Season of Orisii. Building on our international diasporic tour from last year, this season's theme is Orisii, or 'pairs' in the Afric language of Yoruba. We've invited different types of pairs to explore the through-line between menarche and menopause. You will hear parent/child, partner/lovers and siblings to offer their reflections and observations about this journey as individual and as orisii. We as people capable of menstruation understand that each experience is unique and impacts both our selves and connections we have to our loved ones.



On this first episode, we have gina Breedlove and Ash-lee Woodard Henderson: partnered orisii
