📢 Today is Menstrual Hygiene Day and we want to shout about it! 

🩸 Period poverty in the UK is real, according to a recent survey commissioned by ActionAid UK have found that nearly ONE in EIGHT people who menstruate have struggled to buy menstrual products in the last SIX months.

🩸Did you know that in the UK today, 22% of people who menstruate feel embarrassed during their period.

☁️ Imagine a #PeriodFriendlyWorld, where the stigma and taboo surrounding menstruation are history. It is a world where everyone can access the products, education and infrastructure they need.

From all over the world, we stand, we work, we fight together for a #PeriodFriendlyWorld.

What is your vision of a #PeriodFriendlyWorld?
