Let’s talk about periods. It’s 2022 and gender equality is a relatively hot topic, but that sentence is still something that makes people feel uncomfortable. The subject of menstruation is still something that is considered taboo and although many organizations are doing what they can to end the shame and eradicate period poverty, there is still a long way to go.
We are firm believers that we need to help break the silence, raise awareness and change negative social norms surrounding menstrual hygiene around the world, so that women and girls feel empowered to manage their periods safely, hygienically, with confidence and without embarrassment. We should live in a world where no woman or girl is limited by something as natural and normal as menstruating.
To support this belief, we have created a free toolkit to help schools across the globe raise awareness and educate students around periods and good menstrual hygiene.
