Did anyone else see Period. End of Sentence on Netflix. It was recently awarded an Oscar. It's very uplifting about women overcoming stigma about menstruation.

I saw it. I liked it and I suppose budget constraints kept it short but I would have liked a more in depth look at the subject. Now that the subject matter is out there and has won an award maybe someone will make another documentary. I don't think we in the Western world realize what cultural barriers there are for women because of menstruation.

I watched that and it was thought provoking for me. I am watching a docu-series about children born into poverty in the 'untouchables' class in India. It is called Daughters of Destiny. These children attend a free boarding school from age 4-18 in hopes of educating them and getting them into college to help break the cycle of poverty.
