The 75 minute documentary Pandora’s Box unmasks the global menstrual inequity, pulling back the veil on centuries of mistreatment. Here we  witness the unforgettable stories of girls in Africa, India, and beyond, who lack education and access to period products. From Maasai villages, to Mumbai and on to London, we meet young women who are forced to stay  at home from school, or even drop out, merely because they don’t have  access to, nor can they afford, menstrual supplies. We also meet women  who were once incarcerated in the U.S. prison system, talking about  their struggles to menstruate safely while deprived of system, talking  about their struggles to menstruate safely while deprived of basic human hygiene.
The documentary also captures the commentary of heroes, innovators, activists and thought leaders. We watch them battle the stigma of
menstruation with their mission to educate and change minds and cultural biases.
