Event description

Description

It has been proposed that in biblical times The Red Tent was a place where menstruating women would congregate and gain mutual support and encouragement.

This is in stark contrast the situation experience by many women today, in Australia and around the world, who are ashamed of or shunned during their periods.

Despite recent positive movements changing the stigma and taboo surrounding of female menstruation there is still much shame associated with it.

This talk engages with changing attitudes and challenging the reception in the workplace, exhibiting institutions and trends within the media.

Panel:

Lara Owen, recognised internationally for her pioneering work on the menstrual cycle

Dr Lauren Rosewarne, Senior Lecturer in the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Melbourne

Associate Professor Kate MacNeill, current Head of Art History
