KC Short: Break the Cycle

We asked women to tell us about their first periods and how that set a tone for how they view their bodies today. A tribute to International Women’s Day.

Listen to the full version of the song, “JASADIK-HOM (Your Body of Theirs)” by DAM, sampled at the end of this episode. Artwork by Beya Khalifa.
