Mean Reads: Early HRT ads were cute, book by Last F*ckable Day writer, menopause myths

Last fuckable day skit

The best news in this week’s roundup is that Jessi Klein, who wrote for Inside Amy Schumer, has written a book of essays that will be released in April called I’ll Show Myself Out: Essays on Midlife and Motherhood.

Amusing in a different way is the article about early Hormone Replacement Therapy ad which said things like: “she will not become dull and unattractive,” and promised she would become “pleasant to live with once again.” This article also talks about the 2002 Women’s Health Initiative study that erroneously, tragically, scared everyone away from HRT.
