Widening the Cycle is a social justice art show addressing the complex issues pertaining to menstruation and reproductive justice.
Following the 2013 biennial conference of the Society for Menstrual Cycle Research (SMCR), artist and menstrual designer Jen Lewis was inspired to curate a visual exhibit that would further enrich, inform and strengthen the interdisciplinary event. Menstruation is a human right that must be made visible in order to become part of the broader gender equality discussion. This radical thematic collection brings together 38 artists from 10 countries to disrupt the current cultural narrative and replace it with one that reflects the real thoughts, emotions and experiences of menstruaters.
