#LiveTweetYourPeriod was a hashtag that was started in November 2014 to break the social stigma around the period. Women were encouraged to talk about their period openly and freely without having to think twice. So now, a lot of women have taken to twitter to “live tweet” their days of a natural process that their bodies go through every month. Trust me, this is absolutely liberating!
