Hey everyone! I just received a newsletter from the Divacup cmopany and I thought I'd share! They say that there is going to be an article about menstrual cups in a magazine.

Have you met resistance when you tout the virtues of The
DivaCup®? It happens, but fortunately more women are open
to this great alternative than ever before. First for Women
(a magazine that is available in grocery stores and pharmacies
nationwide and reaches over 4 million women!) will publish
a feature article on the menstrual cup concept in their
August 24th issue. It will be available on newsstands August 3rd.

We believe this article has the potential to dispel many of the
misconceptions about this revolutionary concept. This 2 page
article can be great for you to use to get the word out!

Watch for our ads in Lucky magazine (August) and in
Body and Soul

Oh wow! They're not kidding-- that particular mag is in the rack by the checkout at my grocery store here. Though I do wonder if the article will focus on menstrual cups in general with a Diva focus, or if it will pretend no other cup ever existed except the Diva. Hmm... either way though, publicity!!

It doesn't focus on the Diva. I interviewed for this article...the reporter actually came to this community a few months back to look for woemn to profile in the article. I didn't make the final cut though.

That sounds great! As the poster above mentioned, I hope that the article will be on menstrual cups in general, but somehow I kind of doubt that. Wish it could get that sort of exposure in NZ!

Yayy! I keep hoping that Jane mag would do a thing on menstrual cups, since they're pro-girl power and all, but I'm not sure how to make it happen.

Letter to the editor? Though I've never seen this Jane mag you speak of :)

I assume you don't mean the Jane magazine that went out of business a year and a half ago?

We knew about the article - I think they interviewed people from this community!

Oh boo, I didn't get to be interviewed.
