The Menarche Experience in Twenty-Three Foreign Countries.
Logan, Deana Dorman
Adolescence, v15 n58 p247-56 Sum 1980
Ninety-five women (18-26 years of age) from 23 countries were interviewed regarding (1) their preparation for menarche, (2) messages from others at the time of menarche, and (3) their emotional responses to the first period. Mothers were the source of information for most girls. Others' reactions were primarily hygiene-centered. Comparisons with American data are made. (Author/DB)
