About Bloody TimeKaren Pickering & Jane Bennett
ABOUT BLOODY TIME makes the case for menstrual revolution as an essential key to unlocking gender equality. Thousands of women and girls shared their experience of menstruation and menopause. The results were clear. Shame. Stigma. Humiliation. Disgust. Negative attitudes are pervasive, entrenched, and harmful.
Co-written by Karen Pickering (feminist organiser) and Jane Bennett (menstrual educator), this book digs deep into the menstrual taboo: where it exists, how it came to be and why it’s so resilient. Our culture asks women and girls to view their bodies through a prism of negativity and fear. We want to change that.
