"Since the beginning of time, women have been made to feel ashamed of their bodies and their periods. It has even been a barrier to women and girls ability to have and seek access to education and or employment. Its time we remove the stigma and create space for honest and informative conversation about menstruation, one that doesn't leave anyone out. Period Power helps us get there."--Jamira Burley, Head of Youth Engagement and Skills for the Global Business Coalition for Education

If this blurb makes you uncomfortable because I'm talking about menstruation, you NEED to read this book. Change the cycle."--Schuyler Bailar, transgender man on the Harvard swim team
"Period Power is a must-read for women and men to educate themselves both on the history and stigma of menstruation, period policy, and its representation in the media -- but also concrete action items for making a difference. Nadya's ability to combine knowledge with action is what makes Period Power so powerful."--Caity Begg, founder of Authentic.Social

Clark, Former Executive Director of End Rape on Campus and co-author of We Believe You: Survivors of Campus Sexual Assault Speak Out
