Period. End of Sentence. Film Screening and Critical Panel

  • 754 Schermerhorn Extension 1200 Amsterdam Avenue New York, NY, 10027 United States (map)

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?

Co-sponsored by the Institute for the Study of Human Rights and the Institute for Research on Women, Gender and Sexuality
