The reasons for this confidentiality are numerous. We are told to be shamefaced on our periods and the worse thing is that many of us can’t afford hygiene products of menstrual and we are taxing for it.

Today I am going to show you outstanding artworks that prove menstrual blood is nothing to be ashamed of.

Here is a number of paintings on Instagram. Each of the artwork portrays incredible massage.

1. This painting is created by Alpaca Ceramics who is a Melbourne-based artist. It is not your typical Victorian-era realist artwork. The Victorians were infamous for fastening down on the sexual declaration, and women’s bodies in specific. The red colour which is used to show blood in the middle of the artwork is then an enormous ‘F U’ to that kind of ethics, which we all know still exists today.

It forces you to pay attention to it.  Not only does the piece bat no eyelids about periods, it also represents a woman masturbating – patriarchal society is probably close to imploding right about now!

I took it as a reminder of my fertility and ever since I have an even greater appreciation for my menstrual cycle.”

8. People don’t like soaked sanitary napkins and tampon with blood, it is a source of torture to a society that acts like it is a shameful secret. And that’s what makes this artwork by Judy Chicago so jarring and so important. Unless you’re the one dealing with your own tampons, it’s very unlikely that you’ll ever even know what this process looks like.
