World needs more straight talk about period!

Period is a natural part of  every menstruating person’s life, but unfortunately our society has made this normal thing taboo. Although menstruation concerns about half of the world’s population, the shame and stigma associated with it still exists. This is why the world needs more straight talk about menstruation!

Removing the shame and stigma associated with menstruation can help reduce menstrual poverty and inequality. In many countries, menstruating individuals cannot use menstrual pads or use them insufficiently, leading to menstrual-related health problems and absences from school or work. By removing the shame associated with menstruation, we can also promote the availability of menstrual pads and make them easier to use around the world.

Vuokkoset wants to promote an open discussion about menstruation. Our Straight period talk- campaign has helped to reduce the shame associated with menstruation. We should all be able to talk openly about periods. By doing so, we can help create a world where every person who menstruates can be proud to be a human being with a period.
