Recent Media Engagement

Members of Menstruation Research Network have been approached by a number of media organisations for comment on issues surrounding menstruation. Here’s a round-up of some of our recent media engagements:

Lara Owen was quoted in an article in the Financial Times , ‘How to Make your Menstrual Cycle Work for You’ in May, and again in The Times this August, in an extract of broadcaster Emma Barnett’s book, Period. Lara was also interviewed on ABC Radio Adelaide’s Breakfast show on 27th August 2019, where she spoke about the disposable menstrual product industry (listen to Lara’s contribution from around 2 hours in).

In May, Bee Hughes provided an academic perspective alongside Liverpool based activists contributing to an article in the Liverpool Echo on the work being done around menstruation and homelessness in the city.
