In this talk Jen will draw on qualitative interview data from semi-structured and unstructured interviews with various workplace stakeholders. Showing how the leaky bodies of workers remain poorly theorised and are unrecognised in workplace environment, policy and practice.

Blood and other uncontained bodily fluids are highly regulated by societal disgust and through feelings of shame.

The ideal worker does not leak.
