Period Equity Posters
For this social poster project, I chose to tackle the complex topic of period equity and address various global injustices surrounding menstruation. Globally, periods are often thought of as dirty, and in some parts of the world, period experiencing people are prohibited from entering kitchens, places of worship, and are sometimes temporarily shunned from their own homes. The stigma around periods and a lack of education around menstrual hygiene also affects access to education. In the US, menstrual hygiene products are not considered a necessity, and thus have an additional luxury tax.
Based on these findings from my research, I created posters that individually addressed separate issues within the topic of period equity. As a series, the messaging and graphics are intentionally confrontational to reflect the reality of a period and the social inequities that accompany it.
