Competition - Grand reportage

WOMENstruate

By Lauren Anders Brown

What could be more mundane and ordinary than a woman’s period? And yet for many women, periods come with stigma and taboos. WOMENstruate offers an insight into the menstrual experience of seven women across Africa. Shot in six days, the average length of menstruation, this comprehensive documentary defends the trivialization of menstruation, despite it still being emblematic of much discrimination against women.
