Synopsis: An art music video celebrating menstruation and fighting period poverty.
With a tongue-in-cheek approach we want to spark a conversation about the period stigma and economic issues of people who menstruate.
It’s entirely a passion project, not for profit, brought together by a dedicated team of people, mostly women-identifying.
