Join expert panelists as they examine the intersection of law, policy, and menstruation. The panel will seek to answer questions about how society subjects individuals who menstruate (menstruators) to structural and intersectional forms of oppression. Part of the panel will also look at how collaborating with other social justice movements can help as a path towards menstrual justice, which has the goal of identifying, reducing, and remedying harm resulting from structural oppression of menstruators (menstrual injustices). The panel will also discuss how menstrual justice also aims to support menstruators’ multidimensionality by working on inclusive, equitable, dignity-enhancing, and agency-enhancing reforms to law, policy, and praxis.

This event is co-sponsored by Women's Law Society, the Journal of Race Gender and Social Justice, If/When/how, Health Law and Policy Society, and The Haven.
