Bleed With Me: A Film About Menstruation
Mentor: Dr. Negar Elmieh
How can I contribute to feminism? Feminism is a movement to end sexist oppression. Because menstruation is expected of and associated with women, destigmatizing menstruation is an important feminist issue. Approximately half the world menstruates at some point in their lives, however, menstruation continues to be stigmatized and silenced in many parts of the world. To challenge menstrual stigma, I created Bleed With Me, a film that calls for open conversations about menstruation. By pairing interview sound recordings with engaging visuals, Bleed With Me illustrates in both message and medium that open conversation is a key to destigmatizing menstruation.
