The Tribe for Gender Equity & Social Justice and Periodensystem invite you to a screening and discussion of Period. End of Sentence

About this Event

Following International Day of the Girl Child 2020 this month, Impact Hub Berlin’s Tribe for Gender Equity & Social Justice, alongside Periodensystem, invite you to a screening and discussion of Period. End of Sentence.

After the screening, we’ll discuss empowerment, the right to education and a dignified menstruation for equal futures, and the role of social entrepreneurship in fighting period stigma and period poverty.

Period. End of Sentence is a 2018 documentary short film directed by Rayka Zehtabchi. In a rural village outside Delhi, India, women lead a quiet revolution. They fight against the deeply rooted stigma of menstruation. Period. End of Sentence tells their story.

For generations, these women didn’t have access to pads, which led to health problems and girls missing school or dropping out entirely. But when a sanitary pad machine is installed in the village, the women learn to manufacture and market their own pads, empowering the women of their community.

Periodensystem is a Berlin-based NGO and platform fighting period poverty, promoting the needs of homeless women and working on everything related to periods and education.

Please note that this event will take place in person, but our safety regulations relating to the Covid-19 pandemic must be strictly observed. Attendee numbers are capped, masks must be worn and distance must be kept at all times.

The Gender Equity & Social Justice Tribe is meant to be a safe space for open conversations, between people with diverse voices and perspectives. It aims to host conversations that matter and raise awareness on how global challenges are connected to gender equity and social justice and their impacts on how we experience the world, in a casual, non-intimidating way.

This event is brought to you by the Gender Equity & Social Justice Tribe at Impact Hub Berlin – where change goes to work.
