Documentary On Menstruation In India Wins At Oscars 2019

Guneet Monga’s co-production, ‘Period. End of Sentence.’ won the Best Documentary Short at the 91st Academy Awards! 

The plot of the documentary revolves around the deeply rooted stigma associated with menstruation and delves upon the work of real life Pad Man Arunachalam Muruganantham.

Thank you to the Academy for the highest honour and for recognising the efforts of the young girls from Oakwood school in LA to Kathikera in UP in helping us shatter the glass ceiling. Periods are normal and in no way do they stops us from achieving anything. This has been more than 10 years of work of Action India run by Gauri Chaudhary on educating reproductive rights on the ground in many villages. Feminist Majority Movement and Girls learn International have been pushing this cause in US.

Every girl in India or anywhere around the world needs to know this and hear this loud and clear. Period is an end of a sentence but not a girl’s eduction… Here is to more girl power… I really want every girl to know that each one of them is a goddess. Now, that we have an Oscar, let’s go change the world.” said an excited Guneet Monga!
