Abstract

Through human history, imaginary menstrual blood has carried out an overflow of meanings, symbolisms and beliefs ( such as the protective power of the colour red) : they are still active in our collective memory. The concept of menstrual blood is historically related to the evil eye and the snake. This article navigates through discussions about the imaginary menstrual blood in Occident’s civilizing process.
