Summary
  • "This is a book about gender equality in the United States and how to engage in activism to get there"--
  • For centuries, periods have been a taboo subject. They're embarrassing. They're gross. And they are misunderstood. Okamoto shows that, because of these stigmas, a status quo has been established to exclude people who menstruate from the seat at the decision-making table. She aims to explain what menstruation is, shed light on the stigmas and resulting biases, and create a strategy to end the silence and prompt conversation about periods. -- adapted from jacket
