“When a group of feminist high school students at Oakwood School in North Hollywood first learned about the taboo surrounding menstruation in developing countries, they were compelled to do something about it. Through an organization called Girls Learn International, they were paired with a partner organization in India, and were alarmed to discover how the attitudes around menstruation impacted women's ability to get an education and seek work.

“So, the student members of Girls Learn International, along with their teacher, raised funds to send a manual pad-making machine and a year's worth of supplies to women in Hapur, a tiny rural village outside of Delhi, India. The pad machine would not only provide pads for the women to use, but also create a micro-economy for the women running the machine.

“The students tapped director Rayka Zehtabchi to make a documentary to raise awareness about the cause. The end product, Period. End of Sentence., follows women in Hapur as they learn to make pads and educate other men and women in their community about menstruation.” - Refinery 29
