About the Show

Welcome to the State Library’s 6th annual Disrupted Festival of Ideas. This year’s festival explores the theme of truth, a relevant and timely theme for libraries and communities throughout the world.

In a time when Scotland is leading the way providing menstrual products for free to ‘anyone who needs them’ and Australia still advertises them using blue liquid, or men sticking them to their bodies as armour, Lucy Peach, author of Period Queen, is provoking us to change our thinking and challenge the status quo.

She’s talking about periods, and identifying ways that women and those with periods can embrace their hormones to increase productivity and understanding of the menstrual cycle for everyone (not just those who have one). Bringing the topic to theatres and with music, almost shouting from the rooftops, Lucy is up for the conversation. Join Lucy and Andrea Gibbs as they tackle the taboo subject, explore the power of the female hormones, the issue of period poverty and possibly sing us a song or two…

FREE event, no bookings required.
