A screening and discussion of the Oscar-winning film, Period. End of Sentence.
Rayka Zehtabchi is the director of the Oscar-winning short documentary, Period. End of Sentence. The film tells the story of a group of village women in northern India who start a sanitary pad-making business in an effort to improve feminine hygiene and destigmatize menstruation.
