Stigma Busting Curriculum

We created the following curriculum and resources with you in mind. Share this curriculum with your PERIOD. chapter, school, workplace, and beyond. Open-sourced and free for all, always.

Periods in Prison

PERIOD. partnered with the Thurman Perry Foundation to create a comprehensive 4-Part Workshop about Period Poverty and Menstrual Equity in U.S. Correctional Facilities.

Planet-Positive Periods

PERIOD. partnered with Aisle and Green Periods to prepare this toolkit on sustainable menstruation.

The Glossary for the Global Menstrual Movement

Created in partnership with PERIOD. and Madami, this holistic glossary celebrates the diversity of terms to describe menstrual experiences and the different strands of education, activism, and advocacy within the menstrual movement.

Coming Soon...

The Rag

This publication is an extension of PERIOD that provides writers with a platform to contribute to the menstrual movement through personal narratives about menstruation and thought pieces about how menstrual equity intersects with gender, race, climate, and/or economic justice. We encourage written and/or artistic submissions that reflect how periods can lead to larger conversations about the world around us.

Submission Guidelines:

  • A minimum of 400 words and no more than 1200 words.

  • Themes can include, but are not limited to, menstruation, the menstrual movement, reproductive justice, gender, youth activism, and current events.

  • Plagiarism will not be tolerated and all sources must be hyperlinked.

  • Any submission that includes language that is derogatory to someone's race/class/gender will not be accepted.

  • Submissions must be the author’s original work. Submissions which utilize ChatGPT will not be published.

  • We welcome submissions in various forms - i.e. short narrative, poetry or spoken word, etc.
