PERIOD Episode 6: Periods for Politicians

period-podcast-cover-art-namesExcerpt: Kate interviews the founder of Periods for Pence, now Periods for Politicians.

Content warning: abortion and reproductive justice are the main topics of this episode.

Summary: I talk to Sue Magina (best pseudonym ever, amirite?), the founder of Periods for Politicians. Sue has been instrumental in organizing and radicalizing the women of Indiana around issues of reproductive justice, and is now encouraging others to help her take this work to the whole country. In this episode, learn why perinatal hospice care can be a great thing but doctors shouldn’t be forced to advise it, and why it’s really hard to inter or cremate menstrual blood.

If you live in Indiana or one of its neighboring states, Sue and the whole Periods for Politicians crew are hosting a rally next week called The Revolution Will Be Uterized. Here’s the info:

  • Wednesday, November 2nd, 5:30-8:30pm
  • Indiana State House, 200 W. Washington St. Indianapolis, Indiana 46204
