Period - 12 voices tell the bloody truth, by various authors

Written by 12 people whose lives have been impacted by periods and an overwhelming desire to talk about them, this collection of essays sets the tone for some refreshing, humorous and de-stigmatizing convo around menstruation. From running a marathon whilst free-bleeding, to male periods, to coping with a period when you're in a wheelchair, these stories make up a solid resource for inviting open discussions around the various ways in which people period. Suitable for tweens and up.

BLURB

Periods enter the spotlight, raising a diverse group of voices on a topic long shrouded in shame and secrecy. In this collection, writers of various ages and across racial, cultural, and gender identities share stories about the period. Each of our twelve authors brings an individual perspective and sensibility. They write about homeless periods, nonexistent periods, male periods, political periods, and more. Told with warmth and humor, these essays celebrate all kinds of period experiences. Periods are a fact of life they're in the news, they're in our conversations, and they affect half the population. It's time to talk about them.
