Hello! I’ve been away working on my Master’s dissertation. How have you been?
This year has been quite a busy one, even more than usual, and most of the ad analysis has gone into my university work, education resources for #periodpositive and Stains™, and quite a bit of science communication comedy.
While I’ve been getting on with the research, though, menstrual activism media coverage has been growing, so I thought I’d do a round up.
Today there’s a lovely piece in the Telegraph by sex-positive scientist, writer and blogger Dr. Brooke Magnanti, with a link to my TEDx Sheffield 2012 talk.
The end of October saw a feature on all things period in the Times Style Section by Sweetening the Pill author Holly Grigg-Spall, with shout-outs and contributions from a number of us. If you don’t want to get your eyes all Murdoch-y, click the image below to embiggen a scan of the piece.
Sarah Maple, who created the Menstruate With Pride triptych featured in the article, did a shout out in this interview in April about her visit to the 2010 Adventures in Menstruating show at Bluestockings.
Eagle-eyed viewers of my TEDx Talk will have spotted this photo when Sarah and Jo volunteered to wear Stains™. Also in April, Autostraddle came across Adventures in Menstruating at the Brooklyn Zine Fest and did a lovely feature and interview.
