Tired of feeling ashamed and ostracized by society for going through their monthly menstrual cycle, a Spanish female performance group has made a public statement by wearing white pants covered in menstrual blood stains. The street performance titled “Sangre Menstrual”, literally translated as “menstrual blood” — is a protest against the “patriarchal systems” that oppress women during her menstruation. Being viewed as unclean since biblical times, the group aims to “reclaim the female body and free normal bodily functions from shame and judgement”. The performance has created “larger debates surrounding reproduction and the female body”, and has represented the “body as a political act of defiance”. Do you think this event serves its purpose, or is it just a rather repulsive demonstration?
