U by Kotex recently asked me if I would share some information about Generation Know with you. To be honest at first I knew nothing about it, once I began to read and see what it was all about, I quickly agreed to share this information with you. I think it’s important, and I hope you will too!
I’m somewhat reserved I guess you would call it. When I go to the doctor to talk about girly issues, I might mumble a bit. It’s because I’m embarrassed, I was not raised in an environment where we talked about girly stuff. You know, that time of the month, our bodies, the changes we go through. Sure I could have asked my mom, she would have been honest with me, but I was too embarrassed. Talking about your body just was not socially accepted, at least I don’t think I never really tried it until I was much older.
Even after I got older it was hard to talk about my body and the girlie stuff that goes on. While it’s become more socially accepted, I notice it with my daughter, it’s still not something most girls are comfortable talking about. When really it should be, it’s important to know your body, and what’s going on. Us ladies of all ages need to know our bodies, and that it’s okay to talk about them! We only get one body, get to know it!
I’m really excited to share Generation Know with you. U by Kotex has a new campaign, called Generation Know. I totally love what it stands for, and am proud to have been asked to help spread the word of Generation Know. I actually just joined the GenerationKnow.com website. So are you wondering what it’s all about? Maybe you have not heard of it yet. If not let me share a little about Generation Know with you!
What makes Generation Know so special? Generation Know is the first generation of girls who are committed to learning about their bodies and health, spreading the word, and inspiring other to do the same. This is a fabulous campaign that encourages girls nationwide to step out of their comfort zone, and make a stand and own their bodies.
It’s sad but I know plenty of girls that have been misinformed about their girlie health, either that or they just don’t know. Whether they are too scared to ask, not been presented with the opportunity, never been to the doctor, or have been misinformed it’s important for ladies of all ages to know their bodies.

Break the silence ladies it’s important for us to get to know our bodies, our young ladies and teens to become more away about their bodies, and feel comfortable discussing issues about their bodies. I would have to agree with what U by Kotex is doing, it’s important for young girls to feel comfortable talking about their bodies, get correct information, and know their bodies. There is no reason we should act like what happens in a woman’s body is secret.
Ladies it’s time for us all to stand up together, stand up and make this change!
