Storyline

In a rural village outside Delhi, India, women lead a quiet revolution. They fight against the deeply rooted stigma of menstruation. "Period. End of Sentence." -- a documentary short directed by Rayka Zehtabchi -- tells their story. For generations, these women didn't have access to pads, which lead to health problems and girls missing school or dropping out entirely. But when a sanitary pad machine is installed in the village, the women learn to manufacture and market their own pads, empowering the women of their community. They name their brand "FLY," because they want women "to soar." Their flight is, in part, enabled by the work of high school girls half a world away, in California, who raised the initial money for the machine and began a non-profit called "The Pad Project."

What an uplifting and inspiring film.
26 October 2019 | by eminklSee all my reviews

What an uplifting and inspiring film. It shows how little (the effort needed to buy the women's machine) goes so far for them, not at all challenging the Oakland school's effort... I hold them in very high regard for having a plan to improve the lives of others around the world and achieve it through sales of bicycles, kickstarters and yogathons. How imaginative it was. Today it not only makes the group more hygienic, it helps to provide some autonomy and increased self-worth for women (in a highly patriarchal society). I highly recommend taking 26min and watching this ... Children and teenagers in particular want to show them how much influence they have to improve.
