Be Period Positive

In partnership with Period Positive

Be Period Positive and Own Your Period are not just suggestions for a life of menstruation awareness that you didn't know you were missing out on. They are also the titles of - not one, but two! - new critically acclaimed books by Period Positive founder, menstrual expert and Sheffielder Chella Quint. Written and published during the pandemic, we weren't going to let these important books slip by without painting the town red.

Come and join Chella in conversation with BBC Radio Sheffield’s Paulette Edwards for an accessible and inclusive online talk about Period Positivity with the activist / teacher / artist who kicked off this bleeding important movement.

Paulette is a presenter at BBC Radio Sheffield.


Chella Quint is a writer, artist, designer, performer, educator, and the UK’s leading expert on menstruation literacy.

She is the founder of #periodpositive and researches shame and taboo.
