Jennifer Weiss-Wolf - Periods Gone Public: Taking a Stand for Menstrual Equity — in conversation with Michael Alison Chandler

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, October 18, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

In this groundbreaking history of social and political attitudes to menstruation, Weiss-Wolf, a writer, activist, and vice president of NYU’s Brennan Center for Justice, traces the long-overdue rise of today’s menstrual equity movement. Charting her own work with the ZanaAfrica Foundation, which provides essential menstrual health education and products to girls in Kenya, and her campaign with Cosmopolitan to end the tampon tax, Weiss-Wolf argues that menstruation is neither the “curse” nor the unclean condition it has often been considered, but a perfectly normal physiological process. The conversation is underway to end the stigma, but more needs to be done.

Weiss-Wolf will be in conversation with Michael Alison Chandler, who covers families, gender, religion, and education for The Washington Post.
