They have never been about empowering women (I realize there are probably exceptions – like Sassy, from what I understand – but I’m speaking about the broad category).
The text is as follows:
“My husband said I was a wet blanket”
“My husband said I was a regular wet blanket. Always ‘like that’ just when there was a tennis party, or a theatre or some important business function to which we had both been invited. He said I cramped his style and must do something about it. I did. I took two Anti-Kamnia tablets the next time my periodical pains appeared and experienced instant relief. Now I can go anywhere at any time, and by looking my best I do my husband credit.”
There is nothing better than Anti-Kamnia for women who suffer badly from these periodical pains and headaches. It is a unique formula, containing no aspirin, and is especially good for the immediate relief of these distressing symptoms. Cannot affect the heart or digestion, but quickly soothes away all pain. Two Anti-Kamnia tablets are usually sufficient to bring immediate, sweet relief. Just ask your chemist for “A-K” tablets.
