Menstruation, From Moment to Movement
We are delight to welcome Inga T. Winkler & A.J. Lowik to the show to talk about their work in the field of menstruation education. Inga is lecturer at Columbia University’s Institute for the Study of Human Rights and the Director of its Working Group on Menstrual Health & Gender Justice. A.J. is a non-binary trans PhD candidate and researcher at the University of British Columbia with a focus on trans people’s lives and health.
Inga & A.J. discuss their work and the ways to combat menstruation stigma, the challenge of moving the ball forward past “visibility,” and the ways to speak about menstruation in an inclusive manner for trans and non-binary menstruators.
Inga recently co-edited the Palgrave Handbook of Critical Menstruation Studies, which is open-access and wonderfully formatted for online browsing. You can access the book here, https://link.springer.com/book/10.1007%2F978-981-15-0614-7
A.J. has written an article on trans & non-binary menstruators for the International Journal of Transgender Health, which can be accessed here: https://ianthomasmalone.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/Lowik-Just-because-I-dont-bleed-doesnt-mean-I-dont-go-through-it-Expanding-knowledge-on-trans-and-non-binary-menstruators-2.pdf
