    Inserts easily. String doesn't leak at all. Wish I could have the same functionality in a more eco-friendly product though

    A book based on/derived from Dhaliwal's web comic of the same name about a time in the future when men die out. Can women live without men?! Will they suddenly be different? Will they have better relationships? Of course we know that W/W relationships already exist, so we have some data on that (and in comics, from work such as Dykes to Watch Out For), but what if NO men were around? Will this make women suddenly different? What if women ruled the world? Dhaliwal's answers to these questions are A book based on/derived from Dhaliwal's web comic of the same name about a time in the future when men die out. Can women live without men?! Will they suddenly be different? Will they have better relationships? Of course we know that W/W relationships already exist, so we have some data on that (and in comics, from work such as Dykes to Watch Out For), but what if NO men were around? Will this make women suddenly different? What if women ruled the world? Dhaliwal's answers to these questions are lightly humorous, not (to me, at least) laugh-out-loud funny. The we-comic excerpts are loosely connected, with jokey punchlines to strips, but just okay jokes, usually. You know the (Alison) Bechdel test, which observes that when any film/tv/comics stories are told with women talking, that they almost always talk about men? Well, generations later, some of them still talk nostalgically of men! But mostly it is about relationships, and a variety of women in various shapes and colors and sizes. Not deep commentary, but includes a wistful, thoughtful epilogue. I (a guy, so consider the source?) thought 3 or so stars throughout, but liked the ending and hope to read more, so I rounded up. We have other examples that approach these issues: Y: The Last Man by (male) Brian Vaughn, where all men but (apparently) one are dead (post-apocalyptic, with humor); Ooku, an alt-history manga set in the Edo period of Japan that like Y and Woman World presupposes a plague wipes out all or most men. Bitch Planet, too, where all "bad" women are sent by men. Tables turned on power issues.

    I've always had a hard time inserting tampons and mostly just stick to pads. However I had to go swimming the other day and stopped by the grocery store to pick some up. I picked this brand solely because it had nice art on the packaging. I like that this brand supports women artists!! At the pool, I spent 10 minutes in the bathroom stall trying to get one in, I finally did it but it felt like it was falling out the entire time I was swimming which was kind of uncomfortable...

I'm still giving 5 stars though because I feel like it was just user error on my part and I really like the artwork/design on the packaging. Overall the applicator was nice and I think they're pretty good quality tampons.

    Wonderful! Just enough absorption without being totally drying, and never leaves me feeling uncomfortable. The applicator is easy to grip. My only criticism is that the wrapping is a tad hard to open but besides that a 10/10!

    It feels a bit strange to call a book about the aftermath of the mass extinction of men charming, but there we are. This book is just charming. What's the world like when men have died out?

We take tiny little sips of their conversations and fights and parenting and yes, remembering the good old days more than a little wistfully. And its all just gentle and good and wryly funny. Dhaliwal has a sweet and silly sense of humor and she's more than willing to thumb her nose a bit at social justice warriors and the more ridiculous arguments made by the feminist "warriors" who give the rest of us a bad name. But she never stray's far from the simple themes of love, family and identity. This crept up on me a bit until I finally realized near the end how caught up I'd become in stories that might have been mundane and pointless in other hands but in Dhaliwal's fairly sing with gentle humor and heart.

    Comics as a medium right now is at this place where someone will get really popular on Instagram and then get a book deal, and people can be SALTY about it, like the book deal was a popularity contest? Or like the comics only “deserve” to be free on the internet? It’s kind of a weird time for comics I guess? Idk I just got out of book club and it was kind of intense, like this book got called shallow about fourteen times and I got all red and breathless trying to say I don’t think it’s shallow I Comics as a medium right now is at this place where someone will get really popular on Instagram and then get a book deal, and people can be SALTY about it, like the book deal was a popularity contest?

Anyway I found this book to be charming and warm-hearted and light, and those are qualities I am really in pursuit of locating in the world right now, so I found this to be a total pleasure.

    Super fun! The set-up: The world slowly changed as male babies stopped being born and the remaining men died off with the passage of time. But then natural disasters destroyed civilization, leaving the surviving women in a fairly functional post-apocalyptic dystopia (or utopia depending on one's point of view) of small communities where they live and work together. The execution: The story is told in a series of one- or two-page gag strips that were originally released on Instagram. Not only are Super fun!

Not only are they funny, they hang together well enough to weave an engaging tapestry of relationships: friendly, professional, familial, and romantic. I would love to see a sequel filling out the details of events mentioned in the epilogue.

    I read this on a whim because it comes in a combo pack with both regular and super absorbencies. I wasn't expecting much from these comics after reading the bad reviews but these actually work great for me so far. I have only tried the regular absorbency in this box so far but they work well and are very comfortable to insert and wear. I also read other comics but those are a little more uncomfortable to insert at times and they do leak a little sometimes.

    It was ok. Some real funny bits and I like the art a lot. This is *very* binary and doesn't do a reassuring enough job addressing even binary trans folx to make me comfy or be ok recommending it to most of my pals. Overall, good but flawed in a way that erases me personally and many others.

    I do not usually use tampons because I do not find them comfortable, but I can recommend to all of you the eval liberty compresses, I love those as much as I love Woman World although I'm looking forward to trying the menstrual cup

    I feel very safe using them, never had a leaking problem. If the package was bigger (and with more tampons), this review would be perfect.

    Impressive absorbency, stellar packaging, no patriarchal residue, and eco-friendly. The applicator is not only comely, but inclusive. Would recommend to others!

    I am new to Dhaliwal's work, so I was unaware of her larger web comic work. This compilation was clever, sometimes very funny, other times poignant and thoughtful. Each page, or page fold is basically a standalone comic, similar to the newspaper "funnies", so this is an easy one to pick up and down for a quick smile.

    Well, color me confused. Why do so many reviews of this book review tampons? This is a collection of a popular Instagram web comic series, though not one I had heard of before.

We get dropped into one village, and each page or two is a vignette about the lives of the women who live there. The very young have never met a man and are fascinated by them, and the remnants of that world. The older women seem to have moved on just fine. There is some humor here, not laugh out loud, but a smile every now and then. It's very episodic - comic strip format - and a quick read. Other than a few strips, I found this collection an OK read. I'm not a fan of the very sketchy art style either, though it does convey what the author intends. This one clearly has lots of fans, but there wasn't enough here for me.

    I’m not usually a tampon girl, but I was pleasantly surprised with these! They absorbed super well and I didn’t have any leaks—as someone who gets very heavy periods, this is a miracle! I would highly recommend this brand of tampons to everyone, regardless of how heavy your flow is!

    Personally, I use pads. Tampons give me headaches. Therefore, I can only conclude that any opinion I would have on that particular blood gather would be extremely (and rightfully) bias.

    Very absorbent, very comfortable. Never any leak issues. Never a cause for stress.

    I was sus at the potential for this to be cisnormative & extremely binary but my fears were wrong because TRANS GRANDMA !!!!!!!!!!!! I demand more stories featuring trans grandmas they are the light of my queer little life

    A genetic mutation kills off all the men on the planet. While this premise makes it sounds like this is a darker scifi graphic novel, it’s not. It is hilarious and very light. It’s made up of smaller sketches or vignettes that show characters personalities and also cool world building aspects. My favorite sketches: The sketch where they decide on the name of their new world. The ‘when will I be a woman’ sketch Paul Blart, mall cop Beyonce’s thighs The ending

    It does not feel uncomfortable like the other brands I have tried; it stays in place and does the job. With others, I am paranoic the whole time, checking myself in every reflective surface. However, I feel completely safe with this brand. I can go all day without even remembering the bleeding! I also love that there is a version with applicator; I know some women are fine without them and the environment... but I simply can't but them on without one! Haha So I love having the choice!

    This book was perfect. It was sweet and funny and had a Die Hard joke/reference. Anyone who disagrees is just plain wrong.

    I usually keep a couple in my purse at all times for myself or a friend in need. Very low risk of toxic shock syndrome. Also works great for stopping a bloody nose.

    Aminder Dhaliwal has created a whimsical gem that provides light-hearted entertainment and sage advice. There are bits where the comics don't flow as easily because of how discrete the stories are in their web form but there is an appreciable effort in grouping the comics together thematically which helps with the storytelling of the overarching narrative. Long live BEYONCE'S THIGHS! I pray to be blessed with more.

    I was going to send this back to the library without starting it because I accidentally released an avalanche of suspended holds as I am wont to do. But I opted to try it and read it all in one go. It was hilarious and cute, and fairly inclusive. Finally an apocalypse I can get behind.

    I've been following Aminder's comics on Instagram for a while now and I was always impressed with their heart and humour, so I was super excited when I learned they were being collected by my favourite graphic publisher, D+Q. Seeing the full narrative all together, with added colour spreads, made for a great read. Highly recommend for millennial feminists, like myself.
