Summary
  • "This is a book about gender equality in the United States and how to engage in activism to get there"--
  • "PERIOD founder and Harvard student Nadya Okamoto offers a manifesto on menstruation. Throughout history, periods have been taboo. They're 'embarrassing'. They're 'gross'. And due to a crumbling or nonexistent national sex-ed program, they are misunderstood. And because of these stigmas, a status quo has been established to exclude people who menstruate from a seat at the decision-making table, which leads to discrimination like the tampon tax and medications that favor male biology. Period Power explains who is hurt most by the status quo and gives us a strategy to prompt conversation and promote gender equality. Now."--Jacket
