Spreading menstrual awareness is our highest priority. Proper knowledge about menstruation and prevent and alter taboos and prejudices around the menstruating body. Menstrual-awareness increases people’s understanding and respect towards oneself and others, resulting in an inclusive and better world for all.

Menstrual awareness can be disseminated in many different ways. MENSEN’s study circles gather knowledge around historical and cultural views on menstruation, menstrual health and menstrual anatomy in an accessible forum. The study circle concept has been around since the fall of 2016.

As a concept, the study circles cover are divided into four meetings, each time covering a different theme. The focus is on an open setting where the participants share ideas and learn from one another on topics such as the physiology of the menstrual cycle, popular cultural portrayals of menstruation, hormones affecting the body, menstruating in ancient Greece and menstrual ill-health. Anyone is welcome to participate!
