Staff Reviews


This intersectional book about period-having people needs to be read by everyone. It removes the stigma of menstruation which has plagued us all, whether you have a period or not. There are essays from a transgender man, a homeless person, a disabled person as well as 9 other voices. It changed my life. No longer will I hide my tampons! Let's have conversations. Let's make it normal.

Description


Periods enter the spotlight in this essay collection that raises a variety 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. It's time to talk about them.

"With refreshing candor, humor, and eloquence, the authors address menstruation as it’s perceived, as it’s presented, and as it is behind it all."—Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The friendly, conversational tone of these essays goes miles toward destigmatizing their subject, and the cheeky design . . . will certainly invite conversation. An invaluable resource for anyone open to discussion."—Booklist
