Despite the fact that about half of the world's population will experience having a period at some point there is still a real lack of research into menstruation. Victoria Heaney created the research project Free Period Scotland for Women for Independence to fill that gap, it was a ground breaking research project that was instrumental in keeping periods at the top of the agenda in Scotland, in this podcast we discuss the shame and stigma traditionally attached to menstruation, whether that's changing and how fast and why the term period poverty can be slightly problematic.
