'PERIOD. End of Sentence.' Film Screening & Critical Panel

Period. End of Sentence. Screening
Thursday, September 26, 2019
Please join the Menstrual Health and Gender Justice Working Group for a screening of 'PERIOD. End of Sentence,' the Oscar-winning documentary about menstruation. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion. 
Panelists include:
Lauren Houghton, Assistant Professor of Epidemiology at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health
Shobita Parthasarathy, Professor of Public Policy at University of Michigan's Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy
Emily Hoppes, Program and Partnerships Coordinator at Huru International
While the film focuses on the production of pads, ensuring menstrual health requires reaching far beyond that. Our panel will address critical questions related to menstrual stigma, agency, and power relations. How can we use the current attention to menstruation to bring about transformative change that advances gender justice?
