Turning Tides: from menstrual stigma to menstrual justice brings together works by artists and cultural producers from diverse contexts to explore how menstruation is figured in culture, society, and everyday life. By foregrounding menstruation, an experience close to half the world’s population will have for a significant duration of their lives, Turning Tidescounters menstruation as taboo, banal, disgusting, or shameworthy. Instead, it calls for a critique of menstrual stigma and explores how it operates and keeps menstruators at odds with their bodies and their communities, and in some contexts, risks their lives.
