The Book About Periods: For All Young People (Not Just the Girls)

Olivia Brinkley-Green

Nothing says it better than this book's description - 'Periods don't just affect girls, they are an important part of life for everyone, so all young people need to know about them...Most women have periods, most men don't. But some men have periods, and some women don't. Regardless of gender, we can all benefit from learning about periods, smashing stigma and working towards a period empowered society.'

Why we love it: Brinkley-Green says it exactly how we feel it at Marilyn. Period health is for everybody - even if you don't or won't ever menstruate. An ideal read for doctors, health educators, parents, friends - anyone really.
