In many places, menstruation is still taboo, and attitudes towards it have a social and political impact on gender equality. Pandora's Box is produced and directed by a primarily female crew. It takes us on a global journey, including India, Kenya, the UK and North America, to explore the subjugation of people who menstruate.
Pandora's Box shares the stories of girls who miss school because they can't access the menstrual supplies they need, from Maasai villages to the city of London - revealing that period poverty is a truly global issue affecting millions every day. Pandora's Box elevates the voices of those who are often ignored or forgotten, from formerly incarcerated women to those living in poverty.
Pandora's Box follows heroes, innovators, activists and thought leaders as they tackle the stigma and silence around menstruation. The film reveals a growing global movement to end period poverty, and the urgent need for us all to play a part.
