“My first period” spoken word poem by Staceyann Chin

This video has a couple of spoken word poems by Jamaican poet Staceyann Chin. The first poem is about getting her first period (and using a pad incorrectly). Her second poem is about sexual abuse & societal attitudes towards vaginas. She says, “I think one of the most radical things a girl can do is own her own body.”
