Menstrual Justice in Scotland after the Period Products Act

Scotland is home to a robust menstrual movement that seeks to improve the lived experiences of menstruators. From tackling period poverty to stronger menstrual education standards and accommodations for menopause at work, the Scottish menstrual movement has both successfully obtained new law and policy provisions to address the menstrual cycle—from menarche through menopause—and to support current and former menstruators—and issued calls for more protections. This event begins with a salon about the state of menstrual justice in Scotland. It will take stock of where things stand the year after the Period Products Act took effect, explore Scotland’s role in the UK and global menstrual movements, and reflect on the need for additional supports, especially at school and work.
