Episode 83: Menstruation is no taboo. Period

500 million women and menstruating people do not have what they need to manage their periods with dignity and safety every month. This is also because menstruation is still often associated with a stigma. Menstruating people are ashamed or even afraid to talk about it openly. Miriam Spykermann, the new face of the podcast, and Jann-Jakob Loos have taken on this taboo and looked at why it exists and how it can be combated. With Ina from Wash United, we got an overview of where this stigmatisation already begins and what the extremes look like in some countries. And in Malawi, we learn from Inken and Martha what the belief in witchcraft has to do with it and how menstrual cups can be a real game changer in everyday life.
