"Exploring Menstruation & Menopause in a Positive & Contemporary Context

The Waratah Project is a new initiative to influence the way we collectively think about menstruation and menopause away from old notions of shame and towards a more positive and woman-honouring way of understanding these universal aspects of female experience."


"We aspire to give women the tools to openly talk about their bodies and menstruation without fear or shame.  We do this by working to empower communities everywhere to understand and address the barriers women face around menstruation in order to create a happier, confident, more open and healthy society."

A free, on-line journal about menstruation and culture with peer-reviewed articles about menstruation.

"We think the world needs fresh new approaches to questions of the origins of culture, why humans differ from animals, why we are the marvelous, amazing, terrible, peculiar, cruel, kind, dangerous, and occasionally constructive beings that we are. So in this Journal we introduce Metaformic Theory because it is a new approach, one of several in the arena of menstruation and culture, but the one calling for the broadest changes in the way we think of human origins and processes through which we, and our ancestors, have attained the culture that surrounds us."

Inspirational and exquisite menstrual paintings by Vanessa Tiegs.  Visit her gallery.  See the wonders of Menstrala!


"The Red Web Foundation is on the bleeding edge of menstrual awareness and education. We believe a woman's knowledge and understanding of her menstrual cycle connects her to her source of power and authenticity.  We encourage women to reclaim the gifts of bleeding, while releasing the legacy of shame and embarrassment that have been passed down to women for generations.  It is our deepest wish that every woman, everywhere, may come to celebrate the beauty of being a woman.  Period."
