18.05. Free screening of Pandora's Box

We are excited to host an online screening of the film “Pandora’s Box” sponsored by The Case For Her and Diva Cares.

The film will be viewable for 24 hours (starting 17th 6 pm) before the panel discussion begins, so please be sure to plan on starting your viewing by 15:30 CEST/9:30 EST on the 18th.

Panel discussion  5:30 pm CET by a 30 min panel discussion with Cristina Ljundberg (The Case for Her & Influence Film), Marni Sommers (Columbia University) and Carinne Chambers-Sainni (Diva International & Diva Cares) moderated by Ina Jurga (WASH United/ MH Day).

The 75 minute documentary Pandora’s Box unmasks the global menstrual inequity, pulling back the veil on centuries of mistreatment. Here we witness the unforgettable stories of girls in Africa, India, and beyond, who lack education and access to period products. From Maasai villages, to Mumbai and on to London, we meet young women who are forced to stay at home from school, or even drop out, merely because they don’t have access to, nor can they afford, menstrual supplies. We also meet women who were once incarcerated in the U.S. prison system, talking about their struggles to menstruate safely while deprived of system, talking about their struggles to menstruate safely while deprived of basic human hygiene.

The documentary also captures the commentary of heroes, innovators, activists and thought leaders. We watch them battle the stigma of menstruation with their mission to educate and change minds and cultural biases.

Want to know more about the film? Watch the trailer below or access the website.


Limited registrations for up to 500 participants! After registration, you will receive the link to the screening platform and the Zoom link for the subsequent panel discussion with key experts.  The film will be accessible for 24 hours.
