Synopsis (En)
Women eat, sleep, and bleed. This bleeding has been symbolized as mystery, impurity, and inferiority, but this long-lasting taboo around menstruation started to crack up. Women all over the world voiced up and NPR crowned 2015 as the Year of Period. This big wave has arrived in Korea. The wall of information collapse, and women demand their right to choose how to bleed. For Vagina's Sake follows the history of bleeding and social issues happening in modern societies. With colorful animation and fast-paced editing style, it is nicknamed as "Period Wikipedia."
