please consider adding tampons and panty liners to that emergency preparedness kit. first aid kits and toothpaste are all well and good, but having your period sans menstrual accoutrements is primitive; being prepared isn't just for boy scouts. if you think camping with your period is a hassle, imagine fighting off zombies without kotex. it could be quite a situation, and it's all entirely avoidable with a little planning. spend some time preparing your emergency kit because a lady might have to save herself.
remember ladies, the only thing worse then being in a natural disaster is being in a natural disaster with your period sans supplies.
