Sociology Project - the start of our instagram

Isaura Diniz
Posted November 30, 2020 from Portugal

Dear sisters, 

Some of you already know me and my project, for the ones who dont. I am Isaura Diniz, a 17 year old student of Portugal, on my last year of high school, doing an anual project for Sociology.

My project is about the tabu of sex education, towards the menstrual stigma and lack of accessibility to menstrual products, we have recently started our instagram page, the first post is in portuguese, but I am more than happy to translate it for everyone! The instagram page is @period.pontofinal, ponto final means period in portuguese, so it is a metaphor to start adding "periods" to this stigma.

It would mean a lot if you could give it a look and maybe keep up with this, this fight belongs to all of us!

Thank you in advance, from all of the members of this project!

Dear Isaura,

I checked out your instagram page, @period.pontofinal

Keep up the good work.

Love,

Dear Isaura,

What a lovely name, what does it mean?

Congratulations on taking a stand to work on such a noble cause!
All girls and women should receive free sanitary products wherever they are in the world.

All boys should be taught to understand the reproductive system at school, college and university.

Women are the backbone of any society and the menstrual cycle is a subject that should be openly discussed.

I've lived with Endometriosis and PCOS for more than 30 years and have blogged and vlogged about my experiences.

I don't use Instagram but will follow your work.

Keep us updated with your work and progress.

Best wishes
Peace and blessings
