In conversation with Kirby:  

What makes you a phenomenal woman?

Men themselves have wondered   

What they see in me. 

They try so much 

But they can’t touch 

My inner mystery. 

When I try to show them,   

They say they still can’t see.   

I say, 

It’s in the arch of my back,   

The sun of my smile, 

The ride of my breasts, 

The grace of my style. 

I’m a woman 

Phenomenally. 

Phenomenal woman, 

That’s me. 

- MAYA ANGELOU

How would you have introduced the topic of periods and puberty to your younger self? Do you think the people around you (school, family, media) did a good job of sharing what puberty would be like?

I would’ve done it super casually, and would slip it in a conversation based on having a bellyache or growing pains. That way, it wouldn’t be uncomfortable or embarrassing – which it shouldn’t be.

Lastly, everyone grew up with different names for their vagina/vulva area - what did you grow up calling it?
