About the Special Collection: “The Politics and History of Menstruation: Contextualising the Scottish Campaign to End Period Poverty” is a special collection of nine articles published in the Open Library of Humanities flagship journal. The collection is dedicated to the history of politics, activism, medicine, public health, the arts and education around menstruation in Scotland and transnationally. It is the first collection to analyse and contextualise Scottish menstrual policy. Using archives, interviews, and case studies from other countries and historical periods, the articles published in the collection poses the question: Why Scotland? Why menstrual rights? Why now?
Guest-editors: Bettina Bildhauer (University of St Andrews), Camilla Røstvik: (University of Leeds) and Sharra Vostral (Purdue University)
