When the documentary film, Period. End of Sentence. won an Oscar in 2019, Melissa Berton — producer and founder of the non-profit Pad Project — accepted the award by saying, “A period should end a sentence, not a girl’s education.” Inspired by the movie, Anita Diamant has written a collection of essays about periods that explore the cultural roots of menstrual injustice, which erodes self-esteem, limits opportunities, and even threatens lives. The book also celebrates a new generation of activists and innovators who are working to end period poverty and stigma, and describes the brave new world of period products, advertising, art, and comedy.
