A catalogue of movies that mention menstruation.

So far, I’ve found 83 films that talk about periods. There are over 600,000 movies on IMDB.

People who menstruate make up around 26% of the global population; we bleed monthly for around 40 years of our lives. But menstruation's representation in cinema sits at less than 0.02%…

Have I missed a movie? Please email your **recommendations to admin@bledwel.com. I'm keen to find more examples that feature menopause, LGBTQIA+ characters, and non-English language films.
