The big cover reveal!

Woo hoo, I finally get to share the gorgeous cover of my book Period: The Real Story of Menstruation!

Blue background with book cover of Period: The Real Story of Menstruation by Kate Clancy. Cover is light blue with title toward bottom with a red teardrop in place of O with subtitle inside.

This book was both a joy and a real pain in the butt to write. It’s chock full of delight and curiosity, but also a lot of righteous anger. Period tells the story of a misunderstood and stigmatized process that is crucial to our understanding of human biology, reproduction, and variable ways of being. I also share the misogynist and racist origin story for the Western misconception of periods (spoiler alert: it’s eugenics all the way down), and what a just future that includes menstruating bodies might look like.

Pre-order here today!
