Bad news isn't wine it doesn't improve with age.
I am an award-winning journalist who produces and anchors news at 6pm, 7pm, and 11pm. Before moving to Maryland, I was the Southern Bureau Chief. I launched the station's first news bureau and was responsible to cover an area of 20,000 square miles with a population of 200,000+ people by herself. I was born and raised in West Palm Beach, Florida. I am a graduate of Eden University in International Studies and also has a master's degree in Legal Studies. After graduation, I completed a two-year internship at the United Nations. But my passion was to pursue a career in broadcasting journalism. I landed a job with an international network where I reported from New Jersey, New York and Washington DC. In June 2015, the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation awarded me the prestigious Gracies Award for Outstanding Producer in TV News. I also earned an award from the the Society of Professional Journalists.

This is a heartbreaking news for me. I pitied the women who still suffer from this isolation because of an outdated belief.
What are your thoughts about this?

I think men too should be kept in an isolated cave when they experience nocturnal penile emissions.

I went to culinary school in the early 80s in San Francisco, (That' s in the USA folks!) all the chef/teachers were European males. The French chefs told the few of us women that were students there, that we could not/should not touch the beef (butcher) during our “time of the month” because it would go bad. It was also a “known fact” that if we made emulsified sauces during that time the sauce would break. So crazy, period related superstitions are not exclusive to 3rd world countries.
