Women being out of synch with their own bodies is not just some random melodramatic inflection given to Ginger and Brigitte in the manner in which they appear to dread the changes their body will undergo during puberty.
In April Miller’s 2005 essay “‘The Hair That Wasn’t There Before’: Demystifying Monstrosity and Menstruation in Ginger Snaps and Ginger Snaps Unleashed,” she quotes sociological studies that show that Ginger is not alone in referring to menstruation as a “curse,” in fact, about 50% of the women involved in the study refer to their menses as a “curse” thereby showing that the stigma surrounding menstruation is still alive and well.
