Menstrual Health and Human Rights

Menstruation is having its moment. To develop this moment into lasting momentum, the Program engages in policy influencing and research on menstrual health. A large editing project, the Palgrave Handbook of Critical Menstrual Studies, situates menstruation as a category of analysis, establishing the field of “critical menstrual studies” as a multi-dimensional transdisciplinary subject of inquiry and advocacy. The project also regularly supports advocacy at the United Nations. Moreover, Inga Winkler, Noémie Elhadad, Lauren Houghton, Anja Tolonen and Chris Bobel will teach a new interdisciplinary course on Menstruation, Gender and Rights.
