Periods. The monthly female affliction that must not be named. For all the sex and scandal you see on TV and in the movies, you rarely see women talk about their period, their flow, their tampons or even worse their lack of tampons on a heavy flow day. It’s like they live in a world where you can wear white pants any day of the month.
That’s why we appreciate when TV shows and movies make the effort to throw in a period scene. We’re not looking for a two hour documentary on the menstrual cycle, just a little honest conversation. So in effort to get the conversation moving, we put together our favorite classic period scenes from TV and film.
