Sisters, friends, neighbours, acquaintances, strangersall menstrate. It’s a normal thing to deal with.

So why is it still bad to talk about it? We’re living in the 21st Century, not the 16th nor 17th.

If only the period taboo could be eliminated once and for all. This is what Ashley’s animation tackles.

The kinetic photo collage accompanied by choppy brush strokes aim to capture what periods feel like.
