Zonta Olympia is sharing a movie release of a 2019 Oscar award documentary.
For too many young women around the world, “period shame” — the fear that women are impure when they are menstruating — prevents them from going to school, praying in public places or other parts of daily life.
In the documentary “Period. End of Sentence.,” women in India tell of the stigma, shame and lack of access to sanitary protection they must confront every month. Co-produced by a former high school student and her teacher, the film took home the prize for best documentary short at the Feb. 24, 2019, Academy Awards.
