To commemorate both the 30th anniversary of the Columbia Journal of Gender & Law and the 50th anniversary of Judy Blume's Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret, the Journal hosted the first-ever symposium to explore the intersection of menstruation and the law. Panelists from a variety of academic and advocacy backgrounds discussed themes ranging from cultural constructions of menstruation to courts and constitutionality, employment and capitalism to dignity for marginalized communities, and public policy and perspectives on change. U.S. Congresswoman Grace Meng delivered the keynote address. More than forty authors contributed to the Journal's symposium volume.
