We Need to Have this Conversation. Period.

Menstrual cycles are a fact of life, yet too taboo to talk about. Now is the time to go public with your period. During this discussion, our panelists will talk about the evolution – or lack thereof – of period technology, how Western ideology around menstruation developed, as well as contemporary issues like period shaming, access to education and health risks.

Not only will we have an expert panel – Terri Lee, MPH, Dr. Katherine McHugh and Dr. Sharra Vostral – assembled to talk about these issues, but audience members will be invited to rotate in and out of panel conversation during the event.

Join us after the panel conversation for a short reception, sponsored by LifeSmart Youth. Enjoy light refreshments, and continue the conversation with local advocates and panelists.

You are encouraged to bring unopened feminine hygiene products for our collection drive to benefit Project Period.

A part of the 2019 Spirit and Place Festival

Presented by Indiana Historical Society, Indiana Medical History Museum, Indiana State Department of Health – Office of Women’s Health, LifeSmart Youth, Dr. Sharra Vostral, and Women4Change Indiana
