Some of our readers may already read Feministe, but I loved and wanted to pass on this essay, Traveling While Female. In addition to great safety advice, the author passes on the advice to always bring a tampon: you never know when you might need it, and mere discussion of said topic might lead to bonding with other women (though personally, I prefer the re-usable diva cup, pictured in the middle). My own rule is to always travel with a scarf (which is also mentioned in the post), because you never know when it might get sunny or rainy, or when you might need a cover-up.
