Somewhere between a young girl convinced she is dying because she is bleeding, and an artist who paints with only her period blood, is the happy medium where we can discuss menstruation as naturally as the process itself. What is the cost of the privacy and silence in which we enshroud menstruation? We need to remove menstruation shame, replacing it with feminine dignity. Period.

Kayla-Leah is courageously ending the silence on the topic of menstruation. After experiencing a period in a third-world country, she realized that even in developed nations, there is a cost to not having permission to talk about what happens with and to the female body during menstruation. She brings humor and reason to this important conversation.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
