  • 2019 trial and current implementation of School Menstrual Product Program - Vic, Tas, SA, NT & NSW
  • Turning Red Movie Release, 2022
  • Global recognition and implementation of Menstrual and Menopause workplace policies
  • Australia surveys: About Blood Time 2019,Menstruation Matters Report 2021 Bloody Big Survey 2021
  • Definition of Menstrual Health, 2021
  • Australian Period Poverty Summit 2021
