‘Cuts right through all the myths and embarrassment with searing facts, honesty and, perhaps more importantly, humour. A bleeding good read.’
Yomi Adegoke

Revised and updated with a new chapter

In this frank, funny rallying cry, Emma Barnett shares her story, as well as those of others, to ask why we’ve clammed up about menstruation. She’ll make you laugh, weep, and maybe squirm, about the natural process that nobody talks about, and smash this taboo once and for all.

Because it’s about bloody time.

Period.
