Talk and talk and talk

What can we do to help rid our own communities of the shame surrounding menstruation?

That’s the question that Megan Lierley, managing editor of the blog Blood and Milk, asks Anna Dahlqvist, author of It’s Only Blood.

“Talk and talk and talk,” Dahlqvist answers. “For me, it took the longest time to even say the word menstruation without a little bit of embarrassment, as well as to stop hiding my tampons, my cup or pads. Breaking the silence is a political act. And then taking it to the next level: demands! Demand change—be it in the form of cheaper products, access to health care or longer toilet breaks in schools.”
