Seeing Red: Periods and Protest (Panel)
15 November, 2018, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Bringing together political campaigners, community organisers and historians of women’s health, this panel discussion explores how the history of menstruation informs contemporary concerns about period poverty. In the UK, one in ten girls cannot afford sanitary products. Asylum seekers, refugees and women experiencing homelessness can often find it difficult to access menstrual supplies. Nearly half of women and girls aged between 14 and 21 are embarrassed about their periods. Fuelling an inspiring and informative discussion about women’s health activism past and present, this event will demonstrate that period poverty affects everyone and champions ways of working together to eradicate it.
There is also a ‘Seeing Red: Periods and Protest’ exhibition on Saturday 24 November between 10:00am and 5:00pm which can be booked separately.
