The menstrual cycle is visualized in a multitude of representations but one key issue stands out – how do those depictions shape society’s perception of menstruation, PMS, ovulation or any other phase and what useful information do they provide? At the moment, biological cycles are represented in a very objectified manner that denies any environmental or social contributions to these processes. In this blog, the author talks about the current attitudes of women towards their menstrual cycles and explains why certain changes need to be applied.

This blog details the early stages of research and development for the project entitled ‘Re-imagining the Female Monthly Cycle’. This design project aims to create a resource of menstrual cycle related topics to be used by younger women in order to raise awareness of the importance of having healthier menstrual cycles.
