Own Your Period (Paperback)

£10.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

This fact-filled guide to periods is bursting with positive, honest advice on managing and understanding menstruation. Having a period is an incredible thing - Own Your Period celebrates what the body can do and provides young people (age 9+) with everything they need to be prepared... and empowered.



Includes the fascinating science behind why things happen, with all the details of menstruation through to the menopause. Answers all essential questions like what's a vulva and what does it look like, what do periods actually feel like, and what happens if blood stains your clothes? Chella Quint's witty text slays superstitions, busts common myths and fights period shame, while providing practical information about menstrual products, tracking cycles and sharing her own personal stories.



Funny, insightful and warm illustrations with friendly chatty text makes this an everything-you-need-to-know essential handbook, which pre-teens can refer to before their periods start, and will appreciate when their cycle is more established.

Chella Quint is a Brooklyn-born, Sheffield-based designer, writer, and performer. A former drama teacher and head of PSHE (Personal, Social, Health and Economics Education), Chella coined the phrase 'period positive' in 2006 and founded #periodpositive to use humour and joy to challenge menstrual taboos, and find long-term solutions to period poverty. She became a leading expert on menstruation education in the UK, advising on regional and national policy on menstruation education and period poverty. She created the Period Positive Pledge as a framework for developing menstruation-inclusive policy and outreach. Chella writes and performs solo shows, delivers public engagement projects and designs installations on themes inspired by science, health, taboo, product design and social justice. Giovana Medeiros is a Brazilian illustrator, based in Lisbon, Portugal. She graduated in Fashion Design at SENAI/Criciuma, Brazil, and went to Dublin to study a Higher National Diploma at BCFE. Giovana's work focuses mainly on children's illustration, but has also been applied to a series of different mediums such as books, magazines, textiles, advertising, games and apps. She works mainly digitally, but in her spare time likes to explore traditional painting with watercolour and gouache. Her main inspirations come from nature, women, daily life, literature, and her travels.
