MENSTRUATION AND MEDIA
Media plays an important role in shaping societal views and plays an active part in influencing established norms and ideas. What narratives does media portray about menstruation or infertility or menopause? Are these narratives really harmless? or do they play an intricate role in how we treat menstruators?
The focus of this project is to investigate the representation, misrepresentation and omission of menstruation in language, literature, films, television, advertisements, art, humor, music and folklore.
