  • Gets the viewer to discuss the taboo subject of menstruation
  • The use of products that we could all relate to, something that we see everywhere but just don’t discuss openly.
  • No longer relatable to all women as not all women have periods. I immediately think of trans women or women who have been through the menopause. Does this include them? Something that was discussed at The Domestic Symposium.
  • It is still something that is a taboo subject, men still don’t want to discuss it / feel comfortable with the subject. Even think it is gross or unhygienic when it is just a bodily function. In some countries it is still a huge issue.
