Additional Information

Chris Bobel is the president of the Society for Menstrual Cycle Research, a transdisciplinary, transnational feminist organization focused on improving menstrual health across the lifespan and across the globe. Her two current major projects include writing a book that explores the framing of menstrual health campaigns in the Global South and co-editing (with Samantha Kwan) the second volume of the their collection Embodied Resistance: Challenging the Norms, Breaking the Rules. In short, she finds bodies, their taboos and feminist social change endlessly fascinating.
