Hey, There’s Blood On Your Skirt

A memoir about menstruation and period stains

Note 2: Menstruation in India is still a taboo topic. There are numerous restrictions forced upon a menstruating woman, various rituals to be followed once a woman attains puberty, shame and embarrassment associated with period stains, and much more.



We exclusively publish memoirs: The creative stories unpacked from the nostalgic hope chests of our lives.
