Under Wraps

Under Wraps

| 55 min

Most female mammals menstruate, and yet the subject of menstruation is rarely discussed openly. Under Wraps takes viewers to eight cities across North America to see how attitudes towards menstruation are manifested in popular culture today. Writer Judy Blume, controversial artist Judy Chicago and Museum of Menstruation curator Harry Finley bring a taboo subject out from under wraps in a way that proves fascinating and relevent to both women and men. Previewing before use is recommended.
