Tampon Run: A Game to End the Menstruation Taboo.


Misogyny has a new enemy named Tampon Run, a game that is an old school shooter, but presents tampons as the weapon. The students wanted to approach the fact that violence is mainstream and heavily discussed while simple things remain taboo, such as menstruation.

The idea also started by the creators’ opinion that women often get objectified in the gaming industry, and they had to address that.

Andrea and Houser, the two female students behind the project, want to encourage the normalization of menstruation and sexuality related conversations, and they plan on bringing the game to mobile platforms.
