Episode 15: Feminism, Activism and Periods with Kiran Gandhi

By Amanda Laird

This week I’m talking to Kiran Gandhi, an activist and electronic music artist who performs as Madame Gandhi, about menstruation, feminism and activism. We discuss Kiran’s infamous freebleeding at the London Marathon, how the conversation has changed since 2015 was declared the Year of the Period, menstruation as a feminist issue and how we can reclaim our period power for ourselves and others.
