Let’s Talk About Periods: All you ever wanted to know about vaginas, women’s health, and menstruation is a project inspired by student Olivia Desrochers. The exhibit offers ideas of menstruation from the perspectives of history, anthropology, sociology, and gender studies. It also considers the lack of access to sanitary supplies and the difficulties this poses for women as well as the stigma that is often associated with periods.
During Lowell's Women's Week, Olivia will be showing the documentary Period. End of Sentence.
