Today on the show I'm talking to Chris Bobel, author of New Blood: Third-Wave Feminism and the Politics of Menstruation and The Managed Body: Developing Girls and Menstrual Health in the Global South. We discuss the history of menstrual activism, what's working -- and what's not -- in the menstrual movement, the "seeds of menstrual shame" and Chris' vision for a future menstrutopia.
