Even here in the UK menstruation is still a taboo topic
There’s so much that people aren’t taught and are too afraid to ask about. We aim to break the silence and change the status quo on this underrated topic.
You’re never too old to learn.
Education, Education, Education.
We are currently developing an educational programme for young people about puberty, menstruation, sustainability and empowerment.
We hope to educate and inform young people of both genders about the biological process of menstruation, what this actually means for you as a young person and the social implications it has both in the UK and around the world. Particularly looking at putting students in the shoes of their peers in developing countries.
Following on from our pilot in 2016 we have been conducting research with Teachers to find out what’s currently taught in schools. We are now in the process of developing our second pilot for working with secondary schools. We aim to provide engaging, interesting workshops led by young female role-models who they can relate to and not feel embarrassed to ask questions.
In the future we hope to conduct workshops with all ages for example within universities or community groups to tackle taboos surrounding menstruation and sanitation.
