Sangre Menstrual

Performance of the Spanish Group Sangre Menstrual at the streets of Madrid in support of their “Manifesto for the Visibility of the Period “. The manifesto is against the tyranny of hiding a physiological function of the female body, of treating the bleeding body as sick, unwell and disgusting and all the taboos further reinforced by religion and society (following the guidelines set religion) .

By visualising the period Sangre Menstrual visualise the body as a political space. Well done girls!
