How Women Handled Their Periods Throughout History

“Period Piece” is a short form comedic web series about women having their periods throughout history. We hope this show will help de-stigmatize menstruation, helping girls feel pride in what their bodies can do. The content is relatable, so girls will also be able to laugh and talk about their periods in a fun way. Men will also be able to appreciate the humour, and hopefully feel more comfortable with something that has often been a mystery to them.

Everyone can benefit from the show, and hopefully, everyone can laugh watching it. Watch all 7 episodes below!

1920s Brooklyn

18th Century France

Today

Biblical Times

Buddhism

Colonial America

Victorian England

Good to see this handled with a little humor, instead of trying to sell stuff and make women feel their menses are something to go into denial over.

All of these people seemed relatively calm compared to me when I have cramps....:(

I'm thinking..... Thank the Universe for early Menopause!! Haven't had a period in 12 years (stopped at age 42)... and don't miss it at all, lol.

PS - I also lucked out in the menopause department. The only noticeable difference - besides the lack of cramps, money saved on feminine products, etc. - was the occasional hot flash. I didn't become a raving lunatic. I didn't get weepy. I didn't fly into unprovoked rages. (Actually - I did most of those things when I WAS getting my period, along with the cramps, bloating, and general feeling like I would die at any moment... PMS was a nemesis that lasted 2 weeks of every month!!) I was never so happy for a sign of aging as I was when I realized I hadn't had a period in more than 2 months - and since I was single at the time, I knew there could only be one reason for the stoppage. I was so thrilled I wanted to throw a party, lol.
