Ad for Camelia
pads, (27 February 1952, The
Australian Women's Weekly)
I think it's interesting that the
woman seems to be dancing a Spanish
gypsy dance in an Australian
advertisement for a German brand.
Does this ad use the common theme of
but also safety, comfort and
protection? Only odor is missing, a
problem with pads and usually an
advantage with tampons.
Were tampons being introduced into
Australia at this time and was this a
reaction to that?
Australians apparently didn't adopt
the usual United-Kingdom term for
pads, sanitary towel.
to an Australian friend of this
museum for this ad!
