Working with Women: A Lunchtime Film in the Clubhouse: Period: End of Sentence

AWA Clubhouse, Singerstrasse 4/11, 1010

A period should end a sentence, not a girl’s education' said Melissa Berton upon receiving an Oscar for this documentary.

A recent report found that 20 per cent of Indian girls drop out of school after reaching puberty.  Meanwhile, 88 per cent of menstruating women living in the country use home-grown alternatives to sanitary pads such as old fabric, rags, and sand.  This documentary shows how a pad machine challenged customs and gave women a solution for hygienic products as well as livelihood and self-worth.

Bev Bachmayer will screen the documentary and discuss ideas on how women’s health is important.  Come join us on 17 May, we will provide some healthy snacks for lunch.
