Movie Night in January – Period. End of Sentence.
Screening of the Academy Award-winning Netflix Documentary Short, Period. End of Sentence. Will be followed by a special Q & A segment with New York Times best selling author Anita Diamant.
Period. End Of Sentence.
When the documentary film, Period. End of Sentence. won an Oscar in 2019, Melissa Berton — producer and founder of the non-profit Pad Project — accepted the award by saying, “A period should end a sentence, not a girl’s education.”
Inspired by the film, Anita Diamant has written a book that explores the cultural roots of menstrual injustice, which erodes self-esteem, limits opportunities, and even threatens lives. The book also celebrates a new generation of activists and innovators working to end period poverty and stigma.
