April 1, 2022

Princeton University seniors Beata Corcoran, Fernanda Romo Herrera Ibarrola, Elle Ruggiero, Naomi Shifrin and Frances Walker have been awarded the Henry Richardson Labouisse ’26 Prize to pursue international civic engagement projects for one year following graduation.

Walker, a concentrator in anthropology from Chicago, will travel to Deradhun and Mumbai to examine the evolving landscape of sustainable menstruation in India.

“The recent shift specifically towards more sustainable, eco-friendly and equitable menstruation practices may be indicative of further changes elsewhere as sustainable product production and usage becomes paramount in the face of worldwide population growth and global warming,” she said. “With India’s continued economic development and its placement as one of the world’s most populous countries, it’s key to understanding global conceptions of menstrual health.”
