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."

Necessary To Educate
2 March 2019 | by untoldsabotageSee all my reviews

Wished it was longer to discuss more statistics. But films about menstruation poverty is always appreciated. We must shed light to this very upsetting issue. I also loved PadMan and Toilet: A Love Story. It's long overdue to start making strides to help impoverished women in our world.
