Academy Award Winner. Period.

Last night, the Oscar for best documentary short went to filmmaker Rayka Zehtabchi, for a film about—yes!—menstruation. "A period should end a sentence, not a girl's education," she said. We agree! The film is about grassroots efforts to provide affordable feminine care supplies in India, and the social costs of treating periods as taboo. Watch it on Netflix.
