Highlighting Period Poverty

Such an interesting article about Period Poverty by Alesha Dixon in Stylist Magazine

In it she speaks about the that 137,000 girls are regularly missing school because they can’t afford sanitary protection.

Interestingly, she also believes that a simple but effective solution is to start talking about periods, as it would help normalise them, and takes away the stigma so that they’re no longer a taboo.

It would be such a positive step forward if we can have this open conversation where the public become more aware of the issue, and young girls feel more confident to ask for help.
