Inspired by The Pad Project’s Oscar-winning documentary Period. End of Sentence., New York Times bestselling author of The Red Tent, Anita Diamant, has written a new book, Period. End of Sentence: A New Chapter in the Fight for Menstrual Justice. It’s a collection of essays about periods that explore the cultural roots of menstrual injustice and celebrate a new generation of activists and innovators working to end period poverty and stigma through advertising, art, comedy, and other mediums. The Pad Project’s executive director, Melissa Berton, wrote the foreword for the book, which tells the story of how teen-aged students turned a high school project into an international non-profit organization.
