Screening of 'Period. End of Sentence' & Discussion

Join SAWIF for a screening of the 2018 short documentary Period. End of Sentence. from director Raya Zehtabachi.

The film tells the story of a group of local women in Hapur, India, as they learn how to operate a machine that makes low-cost and biodegradable sanitary pads. This not only helps to improve feminine hygeine by providing access to basic products, but also supports and empowers these women to shed taboos in India surrounding menstruation while simultaneously contributing to the economic future of their community.

After the screening, we will have an open discussion over tea and coffee about the film, its themes, how these issues effect fieldwork, and what can be done in the future. 

All welcome!
