Menstruation shouldn’t be a hush-hush topic, cloaked in mystery and euphemisms. So let’s talk about it!

At a time when girls are missing school because of their periods, feeling ashamed about their bodies, or struggling to access information about their reproductive health, it is important to raise our voices. We can’t let taboos stand in the way of our health and wellbeing.

As the global conversation ramps up ahead of Menstrual Hygiene Day (28 May), take part in this worldwide movement by celebrating and speaking out about your own experiences with menstruation.

  • What is your story? Do you have an account of your first period—positive or negative?
  • Do you have a critique of how menstruation is portrayed in the media? A story about the availability of menstrual products in your community?
  • Are there practices in your country that marginalize women during their periods? Or traditions that celebrate this rite of passage?
  • Do you bring a different gender lens to the conversation as a male, trans, or nonbinary person.
  • Share about your experience in menstruation education as a teacher, trainer, or a parent and have wisdom to share.
  • Were you part of a campaign to raise awareness about menstrual health, or you are creating new rituals and breaking taboos.

No more whispers. Let’s have a REAL conversation about periods. We want to hear your voice!
