2. “Periods Gone Public”

I don’t think I’ve ever felt more inspired and compelled to take action than I did while reading this book on #MenstrualEquity. Written by my incredible Brennan Center colleague, Jennifer Weiss-Wolf, this is the feminist bible for women looking to advocate for the advancement of women’s rights and reproductive health. After reading this book multiple times in just one month, I wrote about my experience with menstruation as a South Asian woman for Brown Girl Magazine. Get your copy of “Periods Gone Public,” and read all about the public health issue that impacts nearly half of the world’s population, the stigma surrounding periods, and how you can get involved in this gripping book!

Yousafzai’s life story inspires the hope that all it takes is one person to make a difference. Her story is that of struggle, pain, and perseverance.
