Learn about the critical issue of menstrual care access and education.
In the US and worldwide, millions of girls and women around the world face an end to their education and career advancement because of stigma surrounding menstruation and lack of access to safe and clean products. Award winning filmmaker Melissa Berton and best-selling author Anita Diamant will share stories of how the Pad Project, and organization initiated by Berton's Oscar-winning film and fueled by Diamant's companion book of the same name, Period. End of Sentence., collaborates with local communities to build agency, education, and opportunity, all toward a future when “a period should end a sentence, not a girl’s education.”
