Do You Have Your Period?

That's the question a freshman was asked by a security guard at her high school. She was carrying a purse, which violated the No Bags rule at the high school (having her period would have explained the purse supposedly). It seems security guards asking The Question may have been routine at this school.

The small Sullivan County school has been in an uproar for the last week. Girls have worn tampons on their clothes in protest, and purses made out of tampon boxes. Some boys wore maxi-pads stuck to their shirts in support.

After hearing that someone might have been suspended for the protest, freshman Hannah Lindquist, 14, went to talk to Worden [the principal]. She wore her protest necklace, an OB tampon box on a piece of yarn. She said Worden confiscated it, talked to her about the code of conduct and

the backpack rule — and told her she was now "part of the problem."

Stephanie adds: "I'm pretty sure your problem, Principal Worden, is not this kid (who is exhibiting all sorts of problem solving abilities)."
