Period. End of Sentence., follows a group of women leading a quiet revolution. In Hapur, India, where the stigma of menstruation persists, a group of women make low-cost sanitary pads on a new machine and stride toward financial independence. The initiative, which is called “The Pad Project” has installed two machines in the Hapur District outside of Dehli, proving safe and affordable menstrual products to girls and women and a steady income to the women who produce the pads.
