The Menstrual Health and Gender Justice Working Group represents a unique, interdisciplinary group of faculty, researchers, and students devoted to critical menstrual studies. Fellows address several critical aspects of menstruation in their work, creating an array of perspectives and academic disciplines. Some of these disciplines include, but are not limited to, public health, human rights, economics, anthropology, data science, law, and more.
