Periods enter the spotlight in this essay collection that raises a variety of voices on a topic long shrouded in shame and secrecy.

In this collection, writers of various ages and across racial, cultural, and gender identities share stories about the period. Each of our twelve authors brings an individual perspective and sensibility. They write about homeless periods, nonexistent periods, male periods, political periods, and more. Told with warmth and humor, these essays celebrate all kinds of period experiences.

Periods are a fact of life. It's time to talk about them.

Reviews

Praise for Period

"With refreshing candor, humor, and eloquence, the authors address menstruation as it’s perceived, as it’s presented, and as it is behind it all."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"The friendly, conversational tone of these essays goes miles toward destigmatizing their subject, and the cheeky design . . . will certainly invite conversation. An invaluable resource for anyone open to discussion."—Booklist (starred review)
