This transnational exchange captures the diverse voices of those working in the menstrual health field to provide insight on the current state of menstrual education. The discussions in this chapter suggest that menstrual education has moved far beyond the confines of schools, and as such, beyond the limitations of traditional models of a relatively limited, short-term intervention given only to girls in a traditional educational setting. Instead, those working in the field specify that menstruators are taught about menstrual health and menstrual decision-making outside of school, with emphases on health literacy and education through a human-rights or justice-based learning experience. These pieces explore just some of the current integrated approaches to menstrual health that draw upon new technologies, new modes of education, and new kinds of curriculum and learning.
