Highlights of 2021

Menstruation station at D-BSSE ETH Zürich


We are happy to announce that D-BSSE building (BSA-1058 P.51) now has a menstrual station, where free sanitary projects can be found. This became possible because of a joint effort of VMB and the central office of ETH Zurich. More info about campaign here.


"...The aim of the pilot project is to contribute to the normalization and overcome the taboo surrounding the topic of menstruation at ETH Zurich, but also in Swiss society in general"

Role Model session, together with the the Innovation Office (University of Basel)
