Reviews from Amazon & StoryGraph

Red Moon Gang is absolutely fantastic and it will be my go-to educational gift for all the young people in my life.’ – The Tiny Activist

‘Red Moon Gang offers an entirely shame free approach to period education, common period symptoms are discussed in depth. Not only can you read through and feel seen, but you can also develop a baseline knowledge of what is “normal” for a period. A section on period conditions lets you check what different symptoms, like excessive pain, might be signs of. It is empowering to know what to expect and how to manage your cycle, and it is necessary to know when something is not quite right.’ – Wizzy, BGP Volunteer

‘This is perhaps the most inclusive period guide I have come across & it is one that taught me things that even my qualification didn’t go into depths about! [Tara] gets right into the nitty gritty of period education in a inclusive & unapologetic manner – being honest & nonsensical about something extremely natural that happens to half of the population!’ – Demi, s3xtheorywithdemi

‘This period bible begins by immediately challenging the notion that periods are something that we ought to be ashamed of. Whether it be embarrassment and ridicule, or full-blown social exclusion, Costello paints a real picture of how periods are treated as taboo in different parts of the world, and why it is so harmful to treat periods this way.’ – Megan, cliticallyacclaimed

‘The inclusive guide to periods is the book we ALL deserve. This might just be my new holy grail book recommendation for periods. It should be a staple for everyone with a menstrual cycle!!’ – Victoria, theelephantinthewomb
