I am a professor of Gender, Women’s, and Sexuality studies at Eastern Washington University, where I teach courses in feminism and gender studies, gender and media, sexuality studies, gender health issues, and related topics. My pronouns are she and her.
My research focuses primarily on women’s health, bodies, and feminism, and especially how these issues are represented in media. I recently collaborated with a dream team of co-editors to produce the massive Palgrave Handbook of Critical Menstruation Studies, which is available open access, thanks to a grant from Water Supply and Sanitation Collaborative Council. My book about abortion activism and social media, From a Whisper to a Shout, was published in 2018 by Repeater Books. As the author of Capitalizing on the Curse and related articles, I am best known for my research on media representations of menstruation.
