Menstruation is a natural process, but can be challenging for millions of women worldwide. My new paper in Global Public Health explores the role of caste/ethnicity in #menstrual knowledge and practices in Nepal. Join me in a thread... bit.ly/2JiuLjt #MenstruationMatters
First, I want to credit my fantastic co-authors: Jessica G. Burke (@jessgrifburke) of @PittPubHealth and Pema Lhaki of @nfccint.
Nepal is a geographically small yet diverse country of 125 caste/ethnic groups. Given the complexities of caste/ethnic roles and beliefs in the country, understanding how they impact menstrual health is critical.

In his rush to let @JaredKushner, @StevenMnuchin1, & @Larry_Kudlow make a deal w/ #China’s #CCP, I fear that @POTUS @realDonaldTrump may not fully understand the existential downside risks that he’s facing. A deal w/ #Beijing will lose #Trump many, many friends & allies…
… and not simply in terms of individuals, but in terms of nation-states. Countries like #Japan, #India, & #Taiwan will suddenly find themselves on their back foot if #Trump kowtows to his friend, Chairman #XiJinping, & I shudder to think how they’ll respond. But beyond…
… sophisticated & capable actors like #Tokyo, #NewDelhi, & #Taipei, @POTUS @realDonaldTrump can expect draw the ire of an even wider circle: persons from #Tibet, #EastTurkistan, #Nepal, & elsewhere will view such a “deal” as hostile to their interests. Moreover, it doesn’t…

Following #WomenWallKerala protest & entry by 2 women into #Sabarimala Hindu temple for 1st time since #Indian Supreme Court lifted ban on women of “menstruating age” I’m writing about time I prayed while menstruating (during Amina Wadud’s historic mixed gender prayer NYC 2005)
Writing about it in chapter on Power in my new book. I am not interested in “Who gave you permission?” I gave myself permission. I took it. Amina Wadud leading mixed-gender Friday prayer was revolutionary and I decided to pray behind her without a headscarf and on my period.
Menstrution remains a taboo and a source of at times deadly consequences of patriarchal notions that it makes us “impure.” I am not “impure.” I am just as I’m supposed to be. I am not interested in arguing with anyone about this. I own my body and I gave myself this permission.
