My research is based on the empirical notion that there is a fundamental lack of standards and regulations on the safety of menstrual hygiene products – both for humans and the environment – and takes theoretical standpoint in the ongoing discussion on institutional change, the rather underdeveloped connection between stigma and institutions and that the stigma around menstruation is currently weakening. The purpose of my research is thus to increase the understanding of the role of (de)stigmatization in institutional change by studying the menstrual hygiene product field with a particular focus on standardization as a change agent.
