"Period. End of Sentence." Addresses Menstrual Injustice

Book cover for "Period. End of Sentence."

The documentary film "Period. End of Sentence." won an Oscar in 2019 and now there is a book with the same name which outlines the challenges facing those who menstruate worldwide and the solutions championed by a new generation of body positive activists, innovators and public figures.

Including interviews from people on the frontlines, "Period. End of Sentence." illuminates the many ways that menstrual injustice can limit opportunities, erode self-esteem, and even threaten lives.

Journalist Anita Diament is the author of the new book and joins us this morning.
