The ZPOC will happen, but it won’t scare away your monthly visitor/gift/fiend/demon. No one seems to cover this need when talking about bug-out bags but you can’t really ignore this if you’re a woman. This video was in response to a question on the website about feminine hygiene. Our reader asked:
“I was hoping you could shed some light on female hygiene (specifically during that time of the month). I figure that we could stash a bunch but happens when they run out and going out and finding more isn’t possible?”
In summary, we cover 4 options:
- Scavenge clean baby diapers and adult diapers as substitutes
- Buy reuseable alternatives (pads, sponges, cups)
- Make reuseable alternatives
- Use items from nature

Many women tend to defer self-defense to the men in their lives. Some are afraid to get hurt. Some believe that women are weaker than men and believe it to be a disadvantage to self-defense that cannot be overcome. If you or a woman in your life have some of these beliefs, I encourage you to watch this video. I could go on and on about this but for now, I offer up a few of my thoughts and look forward to hearing yours.
